The location’s origins as a former Carmelites’ convent have inspired a series of portraits which embody Carmel’s character.
We have sought to fill the large stone busts with a calm, serene interior. Their lowered gazes survey the guests’ table, contemplating the diners’ culinary experience and internal emotions.
The enigmatic marble-coloured Carmel reveals herself on large sections of slightly floating fabric.
The suspended images are a reference to the Carmelites’ work dedicated to household linen. The flexible hanging overhead brings a vibrant dimension to these stone busts, almost as if they were breathing.
Carmel overlooks the table, enquiring about the diners’ experience, about the taste and internal emotions which go with it.
The solemn posture and magisterial dimensions aim to give a troubled intensity to these soft feminine figures.
