The world of sculpture presents unique features. Think three-dimensionality demand constantly reflect on the dialogue between full and empty spaces and recesses. It is the practice of modeling that art takes place, is taking as its starting point a drawing or the immense pleasure of seeing certain forms gaining volume.
The Rose Rossetti sculptures delight by the way they treat, for example, the female body. Your best work go for styling curves, establishing hex images, where wealth is established in the way and made the connection between what the artist thinks and what performs.
The biggest fascination of sculptural art is just give in to see how hands, in contact with the clay, raw material of humanity. They offer the opportunity to reflect on our everyday existential. The wonder of creating occurs in this passage of what you feel for what you see.
each work, in this sense, is an achievement, since, connotations beyond each set image sets up, there is a possibility that they take shape in various materials, from the most traditional to the most contemporary, that allow numerous shades. Thus, the artist conquest your space, raising the perennial flag of the creative process.

15- In your opinion what is the future of Brazilian art and its artists? (in the general context) and why so many artists are giving preference to show their work in international exhibitions despite high costs?
I believe that gradually, the artist will no longer seek traditional galleries and eventually publishing and marketing their works through social networks. So that now, when they want to reach a larger and more diverse audience, They seek to expose cultural centers, which are wider spaces and more comprehensive.
Anyway direct eye contact with the work of art will always be a unique experience, touching and irreplaceable in international exhibitions despite high costs.
