    During the process of creation, I arrive to a special moment where my ideas “melt” with my hands and turn into a material object. Daily moments, deep secrets of my soul, strange feelings, dreams and fears, become the core of inspiration. As if it were a message, the piece created clutches to somebody and [...]

Then he concentrates on using the possibilities of that form as a basis to develop a design. It’s important to work with both shapes and colour. The first gives dimension [...]

Angela Loij, l’última ona

Angela Loij va morir el 1974 a la Patagònia. Va ser la darrera dels ones. A Tierra del Fuego s’escolta el silenci d’aquells que visqueren respectectant i estimant muntanyes, llacs i boscos. Se sent el plor del poble exterminat.
