Gerard Mas is a spanish artist (Sant Feliu de Guixols, 1976) who with an academical training evokes 15th century portraits, applying his very own contemporary skills.

With his sculptures he creates dialogues between tradition and modernity, cult quotes translated with important touches of irony. Mas is interested in the image from the point of view of the visualization, emptying its historical significance, perhaps as a paradigm of the present understanding in which the image replaces the content. Although his work has much esthetic affinity with tradition, also with the use of his favourite materials: marble, alabaster, wood and resin, changing the code is a principal key in the artist’s process as he approaches the sculpture with a delightful sense of humour. The titles of the works are all eloquent and especially the series of the Dames is a great example of the representation of absurd attitudes and grotesque situations.

The faces of the women are sweet and charming, soft and delicate, with pearly white skin, yet a chewing gum bubble in e.g. “Dama del Chicle cortesana” breaks the idealistic perfection of her crystalline beauty, which creates situations of contrasts and shock.
