Description: LluisCera(Spanish, b.1967)What I Didn't Tell You, 2003carrara marble and rope sculpture on black granite plinth, with allover literary carving in Italian prose in the stoneProvenance: Property of the Estate of Craig W Johnson, purchased from the Walter Bischoff Galerie, Stuttgart.

Lluís Cera studied sculpture at the University of Barcelona and graduated in 1993. Since 1995 he has realized many exhibitions worldwide, and received prizes and awards. Cera works incredibly sensitive and precise and penetrates with his sculptures into a creative universe. The materials he uses - especially marble, granite, iron, bronze, wood and even synthetic resin - require expertise: all connections must fit with millimetre precision. The properties such as hardness, structure, fibres and colour must be mastered. Depending on the material chosen, literary texts or text fragments are partly chiseled or applied in different languages. From the very beginning of his career as a sculptor, Lluis Cera felt the need to combine his sculptures with literature in harmony.17"H x 18"W x 10"D, all excluding the plinth.
