Angel Rengell, Attends-Moi, 2007. Acrylic on canvas, 65 x 81 cm. Courtesy of the artist.
Angel Rengell, sculptor, painter, and exceptional drawer, studies and
purifies his lines until they reach their clearest expression; his nudes
are a declared exaltation of the physical wish. Eroticism is part of
his complete philosophy. His drawings establish a conception of
skillfully represented lines, employing all expressive possibilities.
The seductive influence of the moon is a staple for his pearly feminine
nudes in his paintings, drawings, or sculptures. He adeptly combines
the classical perfection of the form with his in-depth figure studies.
An erotic perfume reigns in every one of his works, thanks to those
attractive forms full of expression, motion, intensity, and carnal
reality. As for his masculine nudes, they show great character, motion,
expressive emotion, and they convince us of his profound knowledge of
As a painter, his creations are beautiful, with a good understanding of
color, thanks to his experience in drawing, and the balance he finds
between truth and ideal. He cultivates the landscape and still lives
with great sensuality. His portraits are executed both in painting and
in sculpture, maintaining the freshness of a Greek bronze sculpture; his
models are filled with beauty, expression, and energy.
As a sculptor, he begins with artworks of high-quality religious
character, based on aesthetic ideals and spiritual balance. The physical
beauty is amplified in the material world with grace, sweetness, and
majesty. At the heart of his vision, an aesthetic ideal flows between
the architectural and the monumental. He also simultaneously works on
other sculptural creations based on the nude as well as on drawings that
speak in an erotic language. A great sculptor of nudes and aesthete,
this tireless artist is a designer too.
