Metamorphosis" by Aneta Regel Deleu

There's a battle under way. If you look at the work of artist Aneta Regel Deleu, you will discover two factions at war: clay moulded by man and unrefined materials. A battle that turns into sculpture.

Aneta, who graduated from the Royal College of London in 2006, grew up in northern Poland, where she often came across huge boulders, soft and round rocky excrescences, moulded by the melting glaciers.

Stones which are abundant in the forests and that have inspired legends, due to their anthropomorphic outlines or because they were believed by the locals to have magical powers.

In all of Aneta's work, including this series, "Metamorphosis", we find a sense of reverential fear of nature. As if the artist, with her abstract and emotive forms, always left a window open onto a transcendent dimension.

An opening onto a space of free imagination, for the artist and the observer alike. Because, as for all romantic art, Aneta's work also requires the onlooker's empathy, to express the commitment and poetic integrity of the author.
