For Valencian people, ceramics is much more than a craft or a growing industrial sector. It is also, very notably, a form of artistic expression which has been adopted by a wide range of creators who have seen the ideal media for informing their personal universe in it. The enormous possibilities offered by ceramic materials and their versatility have lead great artists from our land to use them in their production. Among them, we could point out, in its own right, the figure of Enric Mestre (Valencia, 1936), who has had a long and productive career in the field of ceramic sculpture, and who has been able to use this medium as the vehicle appropriate for transmitting us his works, his concepts and his emotions. The present exhibition, which brings contemporary ceramics to the Centro del Carmen for the first time, reflects the multiple dimensions of Enric Mestre’s work, through a review of these 20 Sculptures for a Museum. A careful observation would submerge us into a different, original and ever-changing reality which sums up the evolution of an international artist who has always kept a commitment to his creation, and who has proven his capacity to open new paths within the field of ceramics, which others have followed.

I hope that many Valencians will come to the Centro del Carmen in order to get a better knowledge, through this exhibition, of Enric Mestre’s work and in order to be able to effect a fair judgement of his great contribution to our contemporary art landscape. francisco camps ortiz president de la generalitat
