IVYnode is welcome to repropose the 2nd Workshop of the Sculpture in Nurri, Sardinia with the Professor Mer Jiménez Marrodán and the patronize of the European Museum of Modern Art (MEAM) of Barcelona, the local government of Nurri and the Proloco Association.

The workshop is aimed for both beginners and experts, the participants will have the opportunity to learn the techniques of sculpture of human anatomy but also to know the authenticity of Sardinia.

After the success of the last edition organized the course in the tourist complex Istellas which is located on the shores of Lake Flumendosa, in the center of the island of Sardinia, surrounded by vegetation in an area rich in history and traditions. A natural and calm environment for a comfortable stay which favors the artistic process.

Mer Jiménez Marrodán, sculptress with a specialization in Stone and Bronze bursts into the national artistic market with a work of a certain claiming character, truly original. A work that gives us back the great taste of the Great Art. Her work demonstrates a character that is reflected in the power of the forms, in the fullness of the features, in the strength of the volumes and in the hierarchization of values ​​in specific parts of the body. Her knowledge of sculptural anatomy is evident in the treatment of forms and in every detail.

She currently teaches sculpture at the MEAM (European Museum of Modern Art) in Barcelona, ​​where she has some of her works in the permanent collection.
