The 500 Faces project is becoming a body of work that represents Jorge’s growth as a sculptor.
It began with just one small sculpture – just one golf ball sized head – very crude and basic. Then another – and another. The work soon became a collection and the small improvement that appeared at the end of each session was the fuel that propelled Jorge further. It has become an exercise, a meditation, a stretching of creative muscles, and a documented account of Jorge’s work of improving his craft.
The first faces were a matter of getting to know the tools and technique. The focus is now on specific ethnic groups and capturing emotion.
