Don José Garcia Antonio is a sculptor from Mexico who went blind a number of years ago. And now, all his female sculptures are of his wife’s face.
José works with the rich, red clay of the Oaxacan soil. And his sculptor’s hands. There are no moulds here, no fancy machinery – just generations of tradition and history. His work is natural and simplistic, but the emotions it inspires are complex.
He sculpts so he will always remember his wife’s face. It is the only face he knows. The only face he needs to know.
