THE EXPRESSIVE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE BRONZE 

     As an amalgam of backgrounds and experiences, life leads the artist to find in sculpture, the best way to cast his intellectual, emotional and affective load. The laborious and painful process that is required for the mastery of bronze fits with the reflexive and tenacious character of this material. Months of work, pieces of a life are immortalized in this friend, the metal.

    Together, the bronzes of Castro Flórez form a human universe, generally anonymous, of shapes that are drilled with a daring intensity. The pathetic gesture or dramatic foreshortening intersperse with the soft poetic curve, winged silhouette and the melancholy strum of the guitar.

    With a visual language of geometric trends facing deep voids, the sculptor seeks for the air to complete the hinted forms: a successful attempt to unite matter and space. The viewer contemplates the strength of the internal phenomena created by the matter and receives an expressive message with shivers.

      In line with expressionist sculptor Picasso, Gargallo and Julio González, one day we will write the best pages of the Spanish avant-garde. It is on these grounds that much of the work of Jorge Castro Flórez is positioned; and, in turn, he brings sensuous and expressive evocations acquired during his American experience.

      In summary, an exhibition that is a testimony to the path of a vital artist. An artist that was an attentive observer of the miseries and heights of the human soul. A man who used the bronze material to formulate his message: solidarity and solitariness, generosity and tenderness, one suffering while remaining hopeful.
