Catalan term or phrase: no té a menys
I can't understand what is meant by this term here. Is it: "...he only has to.."
No, it can't be, can it? Because that would not link to the monumental sculpture idea.

I'm stumped,

Berni

ORIGINAL:
"Artista complet, *no té a menys* modelar i acolorir l’argila, inscriure-hi els seus rostres recurrents o signes estranys, i es lliura a l’escultura, preferentment a escala monumental. Com per a la seva pintura, reprèn els seus temes predilectes i els dilueix damunt de les seves carcasses metàl•liques, de fusta, de pedra, foses en bronze o fetes amb materials de recuperació. Com a la seva obra pictòrica, la seva escultura està concebuda a partir d’un ampli grafisme escultural que té per missió ressaltar els contorns i els buits".
