“Urban Angels” is a series of solitary figurative bronze sculptures accompanied by street construction elements in the form of rock, concrete and steel. The scraps are taken out of their usual context and are inserted alongside the sculptures in order to create an unexpected yet harmonizing composition. Vibrant urban colors of the concrete enhance and embolden the subtle bronze patinas of the sculptures. The fragile and genuine nature of the Angels contrasts with the rough and brutal textures of the rubble, resulting in a graceful emancipation from the debris.
