Adrian Villar Rojas Unearths Monuments that are Surreal

The surrealist sculpture Adrián Villar Rojas has an incredible talent for creating massive, evocative monuments. The size of his sculptures ties in wonderfully to the figures he chooses to create. In a recent exhibit, Rojas displayed large stone sculptures that appear to be the remnants of an extinct culture.

The pictures within the gallery capture the transformation from stone to monument, the transition is reminiscent of an archaeological dig. The end result looks like technology from a highly evolved race, inhabitants of a distant planet or far-off future. The juxtaposition between archaeological findings and futuristic discovery creates a dichotomy of impressions ranging from anticipation to wonder.

Being in the presence of Rojas's artwork one is truly immersed into a wonderful world of creative freedom and imaginative escape.
