“Son el rescate de los huesos ocultos del bosque
y el triunfo de la consciencia de vida
sobre el espejismo de la muerte”.

"These almost spherical forms which he has called Seeds represent, therefore,  not only a direct relationship with this organic world from which wood emerges, but also with this cultural-spiritual world from which a fair part of the essence of what the energy that constitutes Peru is emanates."

Jorge Villacorta Chávez





Objetos atemporales.





At this moment the Semillas (Seeds), Jaime Miranda’s sculptural works, are entering the Moreyra's house yard. This is the new space of the Astrid y Gastón restaurant. And it is precisely Gastón Acurio’s defense of organic products which makes perfect the inclusion of Jaime Miranda’s work in the restaurant. The yard is a space that is near Diego Muñoz Velásquez and Emilio Masías’ gastronomic experimentation workshop, and the Seeds, which are almost spherical sculptures made from wood from fallen trees, are pieces we have decided to sow in this space. Their symbolic germination will be the cultural expansion that Acurio will achieve from gastronomy from this new place.

Jaime Miranda is a Peruvian sculptor trained in the faculty of arts at the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú in Lima. He graduated from the sculpture specialty and, after leaving university here in Peru, he went to London where he studied a postgraduate at the Chelsea College of Art and Design. Miranda is a sculptor that has acquainted himself fully with wood. The wood is one of the most beautiful forms of matter known by the sculptor as it encloses a whole notion of cumulated experience of growth and progression. It is, therefore, a matter full of life, loaded with years and, in this sense, it becomes a material that is particularly close to the human being. Aside from that, the warmth of the wood makes it become an important counterweight within the area of sculpture for stone which is an element perceived as something inert. Wood has also another particularity that Jaime Miranda has discovered in it and it is precisely the one related to spirituality. So wood condenses an unabridged tradition of world visions. That is why Miranda has also travelled a lot through the Andes and the Amazon rainforest. These almost spherical forms which he has called Seeds represent, therefore, not only a direct relationship with this organic world from which wood emerges, but also with this cultural-spiritual world from which a fair part of the essence of what the energy that constitutes Peru is emanates.

La dimensión poética de los hechos físicos concretos.





The totemic idea of the single piece wood sculpture is a pursuance of a utopian way of conceiving sculpture in our culture.  I do it for aesthetic and ethical reasons.

 En búsqueda de una resonancia mítica.



















En la visión materialista el sentido de propósito se deshace y no sabemos qué hacer con la vida.  Por eso, la dimensión poética nos devuelve el sentido.










 

Entrar a la fuente a través de las grietas de lo físico.

























































Las Semillas están a la espera de una germinación simbólica.
