Human figures made with ceramic sculpture techniques in a minimalist-contemporary style, with a clear inclination for human existentialism generally based on social developments. With this artwork, I intended to reflect the hope and hopelessness of the human beings, sitting in a world that refuses to change.

The sculpture is composed of ceramic, wood, and fabric. The figures are individually hand-modeled in clay, fired, and painted bronze. Placed on a wooden base, coated, textured, and painted in bronze. Intended to hang on the wall.

Getting to Know Yelitza

Born in Venezuela, Yelitza Diaz’s life has been wrapped in the arts since childhood. She founded a gallery with her husband, who is also an artist, and was successful for many years until the crime and corruption in the local government became unbearable. They now live in South Carolina, where she makes art that explores human existentialism and the political and social developments of her native country. Her sculptures are made with ceramic techniques using a minimalist contemporary style. Fun fact: Yelitza designed the town seal for her native Municipio Falcón in Venezuela.
