High-relief in copper (1982)

The copper used for the high-relief allows the artist to shape his fantastical ideas more easily as there is less time between what he feels and what he does. “Stop the run” represents the dynamics of a group of metro passengers in a hurry, who collide with each other, intertwine in a tangle and create a jostling in which each passenger is determined not to be pushed about. All this has associations with the wrestling and jostling of rugby players. The identity of the passengers, their personal physiognomy and typical attitude are not shown here. However, we don’t pay attention to the artist’s warning: “Stop the Run!” the agitation brings about an irresistible effect for people.
