Angel Rengell , Sculptor, Painter and Exceptional Drawer, studies and purifies the lines until reaching their clearest expression; his nudes are a declared exaltation of the physical wish. He creates great artworks; because eroticism is part of his complete philosophy, his drawings establish a conception of skillfully represented lines, using all the expressive possibilities. "The Seductive Influence of the Moon," is a staple for his pearly feminine nudes; in painting, drawing, or sculpture, like a keen sense of passionate strip towards beautiful women. He knows how to combine the classical perfection of the form with his studies of the natural. In every one of his works reigns an erotic perfume, 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 anatomy. As a painter, his creations are beautiful, with good understanding of the color, thanks to his experience in drawing, and the balance between the truth and the ideal. He cultivates the landscape and still-life with great beauty. His portraits are excecuted both in painting and in sculpture, maintianing the freshness of a Greek bronze sculpture; his models are filled with beauty, expression, and energy. As a sculptor, he begans with artworks of high-quality religious character, based on an aesthetic ideal and spiritual balance.
The physical beauty is amplified in the material world with grace, sweetness, and majesty. At the heart of his mind flows an aesthetic ideal between the architectural and monumental. A great sculptor of nudes and aesthete, this tireless artist is a designer too, begining an important motion in Europe.
