“Sculpting” for Roberto Gutierrez is a way of expression that permits not only to communicate the concept he has of human kind, but as an artist, to reveal his aesthetic   worries.  His work proposes a canon of beauty which is not a classical representation of the body.  Free of rules, methods and measures, creating a new type of shape, with certain muscular and anatomical exaggeration, that curiously far from attacking… attract; leaving the soul exalted.  His sculptures are alive!  They are always in movement… dynamic movement that alters the spirit.
