The Craft Center of Murcia hosts the exhibition 'Carne Con Ojos' by Flyppy

The exhibition, which can be visited until mid-June, is made up of more than sixty sculptural works inspired by nature.

The Regional Craft Center of Murcia hosts the exhibition 'Carne Con Ojos' by the artist Ismael Cerezo Ramírez, known as 'Flyppy'. The exhibition is made up of more than sixty sculptural works inspired by nature, with a diversity of trees and numerous large animals, such as a spectacular illuminated four meter long scolopendra that will welcome the visitor.

The general director of Consumption and Crafts, Sonia Moreno, encouraged all citizens to “come to this center to enjoy the new exhibition that it has, once again, with a great stage for his work. It is the fifth time that this craftsman has exhibited at the center and, as on previous occasions, he has had a great success, being highly appreciated by the Murcian public”.

The exhibition can be visited until mid-June, from Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

The pieces signed by 'Flyppy' provide the vision of those who work with glass with a professional commissioned concept, with creative independence but subject to the market. In these works, the presence of the glass material prevails over any other reading or interpretation.

"The author has been working with these materials for more than three decades, which combine hardness and fragility, to create lamps and sculptures of plants or animals and insects, some of them luminous to enhance the play of glass with light," said Sonia Moreno, at the time who recalled that in the regional craft centers, “anyone can purchase products made by our artisans. In this way, we will be taking a little piece of our history with us and we will collaborate in the survival of the artisan workshops, avoiding the disappearance of the trades of our ancestors”.

Ismael Cerezo Ramírez 'Flyppy' (Murcia 1967)

With a practically self-taught training, Ismael learned about glass through the Mallorcan Pere Ignasi, when he already had a long experience with iron. He spent more than two years with him in Palma de Mallorca (1992-1993) in his workshop in S'Hostalot where they began to mix iron and glass in joint creations. Upon his return to Murcia, Ismael opened a workshop and continued working with glass.

A master in the domain of iron and glass, he has created a universe full of bugs, lamps, furniture and public and private installations. This is a sculptor who masterfully combines iron and glass to create forms that our imagination can hardly accept or conceive. It is not a contradiction, but the essence that spills his sculptural elements or his pieces of ruined iron and informal glass, transformed into sculptures brimming with elegance and creativity.

Since 1990 he has participated in more than a hundred exhibitions both nationally (Murcia, Cartagena, Lorca, Caravaca de la Cruz, Madrid, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Jaén, Alicante, among others), and internationally (Toulouse and Andorra). .
