Better known for his works of public art, Jaume Plensa has reinterpreted human heads and bodies in his own style while primarily addressing the theme of community. He mentions that while the act of making creative artworks is mystic and fantastic, what is really important is to do something continuously without paying too much attention to any of the mistakes that might come about. He says that it is interesting to discover chances in mistakes and that it is important to be in continuous pursuit of something.
Born in Barcelona, Spain in 1955, Jaume Plensa has established a solid reputation not only as a Spanish artist but also as an international artist of public art with his pieces set in Berlin, Spain, France, Singapore, the UK, and the US. His first solo exhibition took place in Barcelona in 1980. His showpieces include The Crown Fountain at Millennium Park in Chicago, Echo at Madison Square in New York City, Normade in Iowa, and The Alchemist at MIT.
The artwork by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa depicts a girl who appears to be meditating silently while keeping her eyes closed. A variety of Jaume Plensa's sculptures feature human bodies or faces. The piece is a part of a series that showcases girls with closed eyes from different ethnic backgrounds. It is a sculpture constructed from a black stone that has many shades of black and is naturally blended to give it a more enigmatic appearance.
