Iru Burni, 1986  Three Irons, 1986 Sculpture, 117 x 57 x 33 cm

eduardo chillida’s first works revealed an interest in the material that would grow with time and which, combined with his interest in philosophical subjects of an existential nature, and his deep roots in his own soil. his work as a whole, which moves between the small scale and public sculpture, takes on a sense of monumentality independent of their size or scale.
for chillida, it is not only the space that remains outside, around the forms, that is important, but the one created inside the work -the negative space. this has earned him the title of ‘architect of the void’.
