The perennial seduction, due to the volume and steady reflection on the human being, seems to unveil Yoan Capote. With an innate post-modern vocation and a sculptor’s seized work, Yoan devises the object as a crucible full of connotations.
Formal beauty per se sometimes functions as a stratagem inviting us to immerse ourselves in the conceptual depth of the artwork, invariably a bearer of meanings, embodied by this art maker, booster of intellective capability. The rational and introspective element of analysis, including the psychological aspect upon the receiver while interacting with the artwork, builds up the foundations of Yoan Capote’s works.
The reflective foundation of proposals is then directed at capturing essences, which sometimes are expressed with a minimal vision or a functional design, thus benefiting the sensory potentialities of artworks. However, this capability for formal synthesis, in solutions of an unparalleled tropological depth, results from an arduous working process where the personal investigation of the author plays a fundamental role.
Therefore, his experiences, the collective registration and the visual legacy in terms of sculpture and of those artists who have notched his sensibility, are some of the grounds he has met to forge volumes with considerable artisan mastery.
In Yoan’s work, the object-subject-poetry relationship is expressed through an organic and unusual way at the same time. His inventions, despite they may underline irony, ambiguity, expressive strength, dual nature or humor, are usually fitted with a captivating lyricism, breaking the inertia of contemplation, in order to induce an aesthetic and intellectual experience due to the symbolic burden summarized in his creations.
Themes as hurtful as prostitution and wars; other as secular such as love, the existential condition and the conflict areas experienced by the human-being; or as relevant as the emigration or the imbalances in the international political scenario, have their place in his ideo-aesthetic universe. Yoan Capote’s arsenal of ideas bears an unfathomable depth, ever ready to captivate, from the senses and thoughts.
