Angela Mia De la Vega sculpted her first bronze in 1994 and ever since has been creating figurative bronze sculptures for international collectors, corporations and institutions. Exalting the human spirit through expressive faces and natural body movement has become Angela's recognized trademark. Her work's greatest inspiration is the curious and ever-changing individuality of her children. “As I'm working, I find the sculpture gradually coming to life. The piece never seems finished; I want to continue its creation but have to push myself to finally let go. Having the concept so clear in my mind, I have already chosen my models: individuals who represent a multiplicity of humanity, glowing with spirit, and shaping light and shadows over form. In the end, I want my work to be remembered as something that inspires and awakens tenderness of spirit - something within us that allows us to stop and appreciate the more important things like family and emotions, especially love,” says the sculptor. Angela's figurative sculptures emanate unique living spirit - something the artist achieves by truly knowing - and often loving - her subjects. She sculpts in clay her deeply honest observations which reflect even the smallest nuance in character and ultimately reveal an acute, mesmerizing likeness to her model. By providing meaningful insights into human relationships her works allow viewers to look beneath the surface of face and figure into the soul of the subject. This is the strongest appeal of figurative art; and, therefore, the works of Angela Mia De La Vega.
