Kalos B is a piece that arises from the decontextualization of another piece called KALóS. Aiming to break with the square pattern of the series and give the piece a dramatic and at the same time daring look; KALóS B becomes a large-format circular artwork.
Kaleidoscope series contains pieces on canvas, and MDF panel in various shapes and formats, especially large ones, and in fact, with this series I completely define one of my main characteristics as an artist, using only large formats to make my artwork. In this series I try to emulate in a metaphorical way, the effect of “the infinite”, and because the figures and shapes created by this cylinder are pure geometry; they inevitable invite me to unleash the imagination and create my own versions of these figures.
Another central aspect to build this series is the Kaleidoscope´s structural and architectural analysis; and by naming my pieces after its components I contribute to give it a sense of permanence, turning the ephemeral into a permanent concept.
In addition to the kaleidoscope structural aspect; it is the visual effects produced by the mirrors and the internal objects that really push me to give life to pieces that conceptually contain the same visual hyperdimensional language that the eye captures through the device's hole; shapes and figures with saturated colors that sometimes cannot be understood but at the same time they move our emotions due to their unique and whimsical appearance.
One characteristic that identifies my work no matter the subjet matter and theme, is the use of monochromatic and flat backgrounds in the paintings, which place the observer in an abstract geometric plane, alien to material reality, but full of formal and dimensional possibilities, and that creates a paradox that intensifies, while the paintings are full of smooth colors and straight lines, in some cases almost technical, and that nevertheless, make up a spatial and formal ambiguity which I find exiting.
KALóS No.2B (Circular frame of ø190 cm x 6cm depth and 45 kg of weight) and It is signed on the back.
Depending of the surface it hangs, due the artworks weight and size a special hanging system will be needed.
