Codó’s artistic career has consisted, since the beginning, in an investigation of stone and its nature. Son of craftsmen, he soon discovered his passion for the arts.
He worked closely with his dad, who was a plasterer, and that enabled him to learn the necessary techniques to do sculpture. His first pieces were made of plaster, but he later moved on to working with marble and other stones. Artists such as Brâncusi, Jean Arp, and Noguchi will have a strong influence on his practice. Throughout his career, his works will acquire a more organic form, leaving behind cubic and more geometric shapes. His recent spheric pieces made of alabaster show Codó’s admiration for the sea and its movement.
He is constantly searching for a new way of expression through sculpture and is fascinated by the organic forms in nature. He doesn’t aim for a mimetic representation of elements, but rather interpreting them as the starting point of every one of his pieces. For the sculptor the process is not as important as the outcome, it is the final result that counts for him.
His work emanates a minimal aesthetic through the use of a conceptual language. His pieces suggest serenity and invite us to discover the beauty in organic forms and the pureness of geometry.
