Strange machinery and structures whose axes are subjected to frequent changes in relief flow through José María Navascués’s wooden volumes, harbouring a kind of anthropomorphic content and subtle tactile appearances which inspire a reality laden with symbolism, revealing a creative process boasting great technical virtuosity. The artist seeks a synthesis of moods amidst metaphysical connotations and narrative intentions which allude to worlds, journeys, people or dreams that relate the word and image displayed. The immortality of his works, which are found in galleries, museums and collections all over the world, never ceases to astonish.
