ARTIST STATEMENT

The work of Berlin-based Tomas Espinosa, consists of investigating the field of
sculpture and time-making process across performative situations, taking places in and
out of public spaces where the artist explores the stories of their location and the
circumstances of possible encounters.
In Espinosa´s works, we are led to believe that one understands everything at first glance, as if we truly understand what we see. But we see from a distance and we realize that we have not seen it all. The works reveal themselves deeper once we get
close to them.
We feel eager to establish contact, to begin a sort of intimate and personal
relationship. Now the work seeks attention: “I understand my work as a reflection
about encounters, situations, and time. Time that we need to touch, time to speak and
time to share”.
