Imagination

Raquel Rub sculptures enclose dedication, study and creative work for the many years that the artist has been developing. Her pieces are forms that she finds in stone as she is working with it. This forms are implicit in the stone, and presents us with an exquisite finish and unique beauty.
Since the beginning of the creative process of Raquel sculptures, the artist connects with the material, dialogues with those voices emanating from the stone, and the vibrations of the stone accumulated all the way to its detachment from the mountain. It is then when it gets into the hands of Raquel, and a harmonic connection between the art form and its reflection is established.
The highlights that draw her sculptures resemble veins, arteries of a body, and are precisely the highlights of the stone, which were generated in the mountains, and Raquel caresses it with her hands, giving them life and enhancing them with infinite beauty. Her work have anthropomorphic forms, in some cases it suggest playful beings who invite us to the discovery and the dialogue of the work.
The sculptures of Raquel remind me of the famous quote from Miguel Angel: “A good sculpture is one that leaving it roll down a slope, it would still remain a sculpture.”
