Visually attractive publication, an impressive presentation of the development of his work on its 25 years of work. It displays his inspirations, the strong pre-Columbian influence, the landscape of Northern Chile, and his study on materiality and color, and the great contribution it has been for his work that has been settling in London.
Casasempere, who lives in England since 1997, employs principally clay, which he combines with porcelain or volcanic or mining tailings, through which he questions the treatment of the environment by mankind. The scale of his work covers from the private to the monumental, from gallery pieces to land art installations.
