........"It must be emphasized that monumentality is not and can never be excessive. Rendering something beyond its real dimensionss does not glorify it, nor place it in the category of exceptional. In fact, such volumetric un-drawing can weaken the meaning and essence of that which seeks to glorify".
Armando Alvarez-Bravo, is a renowned and highly respected Critic, poet, essayist and narrator.
........"On the other hand, what gives exceptionality to Carbonell's monumental sculptures, is the integration of anatomy and form by which the artist subordinates the anatomy to the sublimation of the form. Through his passion for drawing and study maquettes, Carbonell studied and visualized his sculptures in monumental sizes."
