The Art of Painting on Stone

His first pieces were created early in 1995, when the artist found himself excited by
the very nature of the work. Painting directly onto the surface of stones, he follows
their natural configurations, in which he is able to discover three-dimensional
images of animals and human beings.

..............

His stones seem to have been sculpted, when in fact they are only studied until
they reveal their own natural forms. The result is something halfway between a
painting and a sculpture. To achieve his realistic effects Ciruelo uses oils.

The exploration allows him to some extent to satisfy his desire to work in the round.
Stone has always fascinated the artist and it has inspired many of his illustrations.
At seventeen, Ciruelo began experimenting with the technique of marbling, which,
beginning with a series of washes, allowed him to create surprising stony textures
and a number of interesting effects. Years later, the search is the same, only now
Ciruelo paints directly on the stone.
