JosÃ© Manuel Castro LÃ³pez does impossible things with stone, manipulating them to his will like it’s putty.
The Galician sculptor is based in CoruÃ±a, Spain and his works challenge our perception of an object so intimately associated with solidness and rigidity. In an interview with the Creators Project he explains:
“My relationship with the stone is not physical, but magical. It recognizes me, it obeys meâ€¦we understand each other. My stones are not lifeless. They manifest themselves.”
You can find an extensive gallery of LÃ³pez’s work on Facebook where he frequently shares his latest projects. Check him out, you won’t be disappointed!
