Intro
(...) The way he treats material and the manner he transforms it into little treasures makes him the figure of a contemporary alchemist. What we usually associate to poor material (plastic…) often becomes attached, mixed, with gold or silver as an example of what a harmony presentation of values can achieve. (...)

Artist list

Marc Monzó
It is often to see Marc Monzó searching in Barcelona's beach rests of plastics, glass, papers and other sources of material the sea returns to the earth after a 'Mediterranean monzon' night. This residual material he usually finds, in an amount of quantity I must say, is what becomes in his studio the bases of his work.
In Marc Monzo's hands nothing is stable. The way he treats material and the manner he transforms it into little treasures makes him the figure of a contemporary alchemist. What we usually associate to poor material (plastic…) often becomes attached, mixed, with gold or silver as an example of what a harmony presentation of values can achieve. His jewellery pieces arise questions we never doubted ever before. Does the plastic have the same value as gold, for example? or, does the gold turn plastic into a richness and splendour look?
However we never have to portrait a rigid view on his work due to the fastest mind Marc Monzó's have into his creative process.
