Soul Mates #1 (in Red)
Bronze, 36 H x 12 W x 10 D inches ( 92 H x 29 W x 25 D cm)
Soul Mates #1 (in Red) is a contemporary bronze sculpture by Beatriz Gerenstein where the artist plays with the deep mysteries of love. This artwork shows two human figures standing up and fused into just one body, sharing one heart. The red and translucent patina brings to our eyes the reflections of the light in the underlying polished bronze, with suggestions of love and desire.
They are finally together; they became one flesh, one skin. Their souls supplement one to the other and make a new, a complete one that they share with passion.
A previous edition of Soul Mate #I was shown at the Cuban National Museum of Art (Museo Nacional de Artes Decorativas de la Habana), in Havana, Cuba in a solo exhibition of Beatriz Gerenstein sculptures “Lo Nuevo y lo Viejo”. (The Old and the New)
