All art works that history has left us transmit sensations, feelings and demands of the artists who created them.

Patricia Cancelo is no exception, with her strength and personality, her work never leaves us indifferent.

It is difficult to think that a material as cold as iron, can awaken warmth beyond the degrees of forging and steel treatments; But if this material is lucky to fall into Patricias’ hands and imagination, the viewers are fortunate. The sculptures come alive and transmit the feelings that this brilliant artist wants us to discover. Their circular and square universes claim better times; its balanced and thoughtful geometric compositions acquire personality and warmth.
Life, energy, strength, study, pause... Her works define her as like artist and person.

Awarded, among others, with the First Prize Sant Jordi 2017, delivered by the Royal Artistic Circle of Barcelona and a long etcetera, she shows a promising future in which one day, Patricia Cancelo, will be part of the history of art books.

On one occasion, they said that hugging a tree was a magical sensation, I invite you to embrace the works created with the magic of Patricia Cancelo and discover the warmth of iron.
