In the choice of his motifs, Baltasar Lobo turns to the wealth of ancient legends and pays particular homage to the myth of the woman. His sculptures seek the absolute in the female nude, the roundly modelled forms of which touch upon the boundaries of abstraction. As a coherent form and a quiescent figure, his works fit in harmoniously with a cosmos of the spiritual. As pure as his works are, as sparsely captured as their lines are, the breath of life nonetheless invigorates the surface of the bronze. In their mature beauty, the sculptures invite meditation and make viewing a both sensual and spiritual experience.
