Was born in Pollensa, Mallorca, in 1964 and creates a work that stands out due to its coherence and personal nature. For over a decade, this Majorcan artist has established a personal approach to sculpting that settles on white, ethereal shapes that combine in their design the object, architecture, installation, photography and engraving. Delicate, minimal sculptures, protected by vitrines, hanging from the ceiling or resting on svelte pedestals, are some of the pieces that characterize Cortés’ work. Different materials like wood, plastic, resin or plaster, are turned into shapes that express our search for perfection and an imperfect nature. Objects that have no other purpose but to inspire a feeling.
