The Sculpture Park in Churt near Farnham, has a romantic charm with its meandering pathways, babbling streams and viewing areas with cosy seating for two. To add to the appeal is of course the multitude of diverse sculpture found along the trail, with many works representing love, relationships and emotion, complementing the idyllic landscape in which they have been carefully positioned

Park owner and curator, Eddie Powell, is naturally proud of his collection and particularly pleased to represent internationally recognised Mexican artist Maria Bayardo.
Maria's sculptures explore Futurism, with rhythmical physical movements characterising her work. Organic shapes meet cubist concepts to produce her unique figures. A particularly sensual artist, she is the creator of a series of works depicting women who rise up from a stormy relationship or express the sensation of freedom. These experiences and emotions are drawn from Maria’s own past and being.

Maria’s sculpture which perhaps portrays the most passion is ‘Il Bacio’ (The Kiss); a sleek work depicting a couple in embrace although not quite kissing. Maria has deliberately kept them apart to express the tension in the moment, as well as a nod towards Michelangelo’s ‘Creation’ where the fingers do not quite touch. This work is a replication of a real life experience where Maria, having endured a year of painful separation from her husband, found herself in Rome. Here she met and connected with a man with whom she soon enjoyed a romantic relationship. On returning from one evening’s walk to her dwellings, they shared an exceptionally passionate kiss, the power of which was so forceful it resided in Maria’s memory, inspiring her to sculpt this piece.  This snapshot from the moment still stirs up the sensation in Maria over again, causing her to say that there is a little of her in each sculpture.

‘Il Bacio’ is on display and for sale at The Sculpture Park. It is available in resin and bronze in a variety of sizes for indoors and out.

Ho conosciuto María a Toledo, Spagna, quando ha fatto il corso ufficiale di Arti Scultorea Io ero il suo professore di volume e progetti.

Come puoi vedere nelle opere di María, la sua libertà creativa va un pò più lontano di quello che ha imparato e trasforma il corpo nella sua vivenza. La sua empatia e solida nel fine, e anche il corpo è ovvio, lei lo interpreta soltanto come un ricordo. Questo le dà la libertà d' interpretare l'originale con forme attraente che giocano con se stessa fino ad articolare il totale dell' opera. La euritmia continua a funzionare  perché le opere sono credibili ed armoniche nelle sue soluzioni.

indirizza la scultura con forme organiche in riunione con concetti cubisti e inoltre esiste il ricordo delle antique Venus del Paleolitico, che la fanno arrivare a conformare opere caricate di verità.
