Terracotta Sculpture Signed Francisco Luque Francisco Luque Born in 1948, at the beginning of the 70s he began his studies at the School of Applied Arts of Córdoba and began to participate in group exhibitions in the local environment of Córdoba and Jaén. His training is fundamentally self-taught, combining teaching tasks as a professor in his hometown with notable artistic activity. In 1992 he took an engraving course that allowed him to expand his work. Luque has a long exhibition career and a tight resume. Some of his works are part of permanent exhibitions in important galleries in Madrid, Valencia, Seville, La Coruña, Murcia, Pamplona and Córdoba. His work can be admired regularly in both group and individual exhibitions. His sculptural style is based on an ideal concept of human beauty in which forms are captured through a peculiar concept of volume and space. His work usually deals with the nude or the female figure. His Venuses are unstylized and exuberant. Disproportionate, exuberant and resounding proportions can be seen in his works, which the artist models, giving them his own stamp that denotes a spirit overflowing with humanity. According to some critics3, this own style is inspired by the new currents of an aesthetic little related to classical or academic models. Clearly influenced by the pictorial work of Peter Paul Rubens, his sculptures represent women with exuberant forms, overflowing with sensuality and carnality, in which warmth is transmitted through form. The disproportion that exists in his human figures, far from the canons of conventional beauty, brings him closer to a boaterism full of tenderness and serenity. The closed brushstroke, with more defined figures and contours that characterizes the work of Fernando Botero, becomes in the sculptures of Francisco Luque the softness of shapes and warped curves, which contain within themselves the feminine spirit, the main motif of the author's work. . Work and recognitions "Maternity" His work has received numerous awards and recognitions (First Prize in the Valdepeñas National Painting and Sculpture Competition; First Prize in Sculpture at the 25th Anniversary of the Círculo de Bellas Artes de Pozoblanco, Córdoba; Second Prize in Sculpture at the 10th Villa de Rota International Prize, Cádiz; and Honorable Mention in the Club 63 Sculpture Award, Jaén; among others). His works are permanently exhibited in the Diocesan Museum of Fine Arts of Córdoba, in the Ruiz Mateos Museum in the city of Rota, Cádiz, in the Provincial Council of Córdoba, in the National Library in Madrid and in the Santaella City Hall, among others. 4 An example of Francisco Luque's urban monumental work can be seen on the promenade of his hometown, Santaella.
