About Manuel Izquierdo

I was born in Zamora (Spain) 1960.

My creative work focuses on an abstract language of three-dimensional mobile geometric shapes and gives rise to being able to combine with each other inside the support, sometimes they can also be placed outside the support, since the mobile geometric shapes are attached to the support by magnets. This work being three-dimensional I name interactive wall sculpture.

THE POSITIONS OF THE MOBILE: The possibility of moving parts that make up the work, offers me the discovery of other positions. I find it interesting that an open work can show all the possibilities of interesting positions that I can find. I keep the record of each position in a photo, drawings, video, etc. Thus generating a compilation of all the positions that belong to the work. Whoever owns it can try under their responsibility to discover new positions. The fact that the position can be modified does not mean that it moves and changes at
