Gaze in Bronze by Manuel Ferreiro

Manuel comments about his Gaze in bronze:
"Eyeglasses and its frames –or the absence of them- say so much of a person… In my opinion, they are the personal accessory or garment which does it the most. I did not wear them until I was about 40, therefore became conscious about them, but not because I minded –in fact, I thought they added some character to me- but because I became aware of the importance of my sight…without my glasses I am lost.
It fascinates me how much the design of frames changes with only a little modification, and how much that change can be of influence in someone’s personality. La Mirada (2005) is a generic design which reminds me of people whom I admire or who’s gaze has been somehow meaningful to me: Jesús Ferreiro, my father, cinema people like Spencer Tracy, Woody Allen or even Mike Myers’s Austin Powers, writer Gabriel García Márquez, as well as visual artists Antoni Tápies and Rufino Tamayo… no wonder the ones I wear nowadays are a styled version of those and I have been collecting all the models I worn in the past.
But I have found eyeglasses are sculptural structures by themselves, and by making them with the appropriate material, scale, proportions and position they can have an aesthetic meaning of their own or that any spectator gives to them… as lovely Jennifer says: 'Those glasses are so my dad (gentle Ira)'. "
