‘¡Fuego Amigo!‘ comprises a series of defiant sculptures that faithfully draw a mortar projectile exploring the beauty of the object.
Amarist’s work establishes a reflection on the contradictions that each one of us experiences as an individual and as a society, shaping what we are as a whole. ¡Fuego Amigo! sculptures seem to rise to the same level what is desired and what is detested, as a symbol of the duality that resides in mankind. An invitation to an interior reflection with oneself and with the world.
To achieve the duality, the studio explores a shape as recognizable and as controversial as a projectile, rethinking its own nature to change the perception of its meaning. The work shows each piece as a symbol of power that stands as an object of desire, but at the same time submissive to the fragility and purity of the material.
The designers have proposed this work as a series of pieces experimenting with different formats, materials and scales, which allow each sculpture to reflect a different identity, submerging the viewer in reflection and introspection.
