Graduate in sculpture from the Castella Conservatory, Jiménez Deredia was born in Costa Rica in 1954.
Both a sculptor and modeller, he reincarnates the heritage of Costa Rican culture by fusing figurative art with contemporary abstraction.
Trained in Carrara and Florence, the master of ‘transmutative symbolism’, he is inspired by the pre-Columbian spheres of the Boruca tribe.
Transcending marble and bronze for almost 40 years, the sculptor of “GENESES” delivers his poetic vision of the transformation of matter.
His sculptures, with their sensual curves, combine notions of eternity, cosmos and fertility, evoking the timelessness of the universe.
Embodying the past, present and future, Jiménez Deredia’s work invites us to explore our spirituality.
