Velez's works are not mobiles, but their
shapes make them look as if the sculptures
are growing, even flying, like a plant
has its roots firmly fixed in the ground,
and yet its branches and leaves grow
slowly toward sky until its seeds burst
open, high and far. Entwining elegant
lines, the thin, light sculptures depict
Velez's particular way of creating tridimensional
From every angle, their forms are seamless
and lines, dynamic; their shapes change
when light changes, giving the spectator
an infinite, pleasant possibility of
viewing the pieces.

It's hard to say who created the first
sculpture made of both terracotta
and wood, but fortunately when speaking
of Takashi Yukawa's sculptures, you
will realize this information is not
His works are not based on anything
created before. The sculptures are
soft, in the way their outlines melt
into the space.
I have to confess the way the sculpture
occupy the space is like
"love", soft and tender.
