Cecilia Z. Miguez is active/lives in California / Uruguay. Cecilia Miguez is known for abstract figurative sculpture.
A sculptor in wood and bronze of abstract figurative works, many of
them with themes of flight, Cecilia Z. Miguez often uses found objects
such as leather strips, Japanese boxes and vials. The result is
"finely crafted, elongated creatures, seamlessly melded with the wood
and bronze." (165). Many of her figures seem cartoonish and
hybrid, such as ones with bird heads and human bodies or ones lifting
off in some sort of rigged flying craft.
Her studio is located in Altadena, California, northeast of Los
Angeles, and she spends many hours there, referring to it as her
"cocoon". She was raised in Montevideo, the capitol of Uruguay in
a family where the father was an engineer and the mother a
homemaker.&nb ... Displaying 750 of 14270 characters.
