INTER LEGARE: to choose between

Please join us at the opening of sculptor and TBSSS teacher Daniel Dominguez's exhibition INTER LEGERE: to chose between on Sunday 25 February from 4 - 6pm. All welcome!
Making sculpture, like all creative processes, comes down to two principle actions, breathing in and breathing out. When we breath in we open our senses to the wonder that surrounds us. When we breath out we let go of our senses and follow an idea through to its end.
As in a breath these two actions operate in perfect accordance with each other and yet also operate as adverse opposites, one providing the tension that agitates the other into action.
It is the intelligence to choose between these modes, however, that ignites the spirit of creativity, fundamental to the success of all great enterprises.
Daniel Dominguez is a figurative sculptor, modelling chiefly in clay and casting into plaster and bronze. Following a formative training under Tom Bass in the 1990s, he went on to work in the tradition of his beloved master, completing civic sculpture for community organisations across the country (for much of the last 30 years). In addition, Daniel has exhibited his bronze editions extensively through commercial galleries and is often in demand for private commissioned work, most notably portrait sculpture.
In recent years he has also set up a drawing school, believing drawing to be the essential grammar behind the visual language of sculpture.
