César experiences different kind of materials : artificial stone, bronze, iron, wood.
As he says: “The thematic axis of my work, finds in sculpture an instrument capable of materializing the sensuality in artistic expression through a personal interpretation of the anatomy. The profoundness that is generated around this detailed study, comes from a special interest in the anatomical proportions and representation of the human body in medical and artistic treaties of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. A fundamental knowledge for my creative process, which creates a conceptualization of the work supported by the reinterpretation of the classic canons in sculpture.
The pursuit of synthesis in the human body acts as a constant in my work, where the concept of beauty fold up over itself to give way to the inner impulse of form. In essence, my work produces a fusion of different materials that come together spontaneously in the figure, where the mix of coolness and warmth create the force of each sculpture “.
