José’s expertise in handling this unforgiving medium means that he can produce smaller pieces, intimate portraits, which serve as a model of what can be achieved on a large scale. If we take for example, the ‘winged figure’ there is a harmonious composition, the rectangular block base allows for a solid contrast to the sinuous figure, with the angular wings making an upward dynamic thrust.
In his most recent series of larger work, we find a figure caught within a different dynamic, two vertical yet flexible columns provide the male form a counter balance, a position whereby there is harmony of tension between the pressure provided by his physical action and the resisting force of the forgiving uprights.
José Eduardo’s work is considered and contemplative. They are beautiful and poetic pieces, resonating with an unassuming power. The energy and internal movement is complimented by the supreme craftsmanship on display. The artwork is refined and carefully controlled, possessing a minimalistic quality that only the most accomplished artist can obtain.
