His sculpture goes further than the finished work, it has much more to do with the process, with the manual work of the artist. In this way Figueiredo’s pieces are also similar to installations that interact with the environment that surrounds it. It’s a kind of endless sculpture that breaks the void that surrounds it and leaves the limits uncertain.
