Starting in March, Bodegas Portia welcomes a new art exhibition following the closing of Ars fundum, on display since 2016. From the Sea to the Stars is an exhibition of works by the Granada-born sculptor, José Manuel Robles. The exhibition completes the tour of the iconic Ribera del Duero winery designed by Foster + Partners offering visitors an unforgettable experience.
From the Sea to the Stars is comprised of sculptures that offer a surrealistic, abstract vision of a changing and evolving universe composed of colourful organic forms. They are works that invite the spectator to travel while perceiving the surrounding beauty. As godson of Federico García Lorca’s sister, the author, José Manuel Robles, absorbs the artistic essence of the poet from its most intimate conception, forging a style of its own that opens a window to the aesthetic depth of the cosmos without losing its alignment with nature.

About José Manuel Robles
Granada-born Robles was related from childhood to art and creativity.r An industrial engineer by profession, the artist was subsequently trained at the Escuela de Artes y Oficios, where he acquired the technical skills of modelling and painting. His abstract sculptures are a journey through shapes and aesthetics, creating large-volume, three-dimensional pieces.
Each of his artworks reflects a cosmic nature, a synchrony between life, the sea, stars and colours. A harmonious universe and quantum evolution as a concept, embodied in abstract surrealism.
