PARALLAX: “Difference in the apparent position of an object relative to a background,

as seen by observers at different locations or by an observer in motion”

 

PARALLAX is a project that freely explores the “errors of vision”, through pictorial and sculptural objects that force the spectator to move, transposing the idea of ​​distortion and visual perspective to a wider universe: a metaphor for the human experience and the mistakes it entails.

Without looking for the mere verification or reproduction of visual disorders, the works which are part of PARALLAX seek to question what we assume as certain, observable, reliable, or stable... with the certainty that in life entropy is the evident trend.

Exploring deviations and setbacks, but also discoveries and the enchantment of the gaze, the exhibition proposes a straying understanding of the human need to move forward; to discover new positions without the comfort of predictability.

Form, the rational stronghold of artistic practice, asserts itself as a challenge, allying with color as a provocation of the senses. Even so, the works are born from minimal gestures, in the search for resonance within the retina of those who observe them - a look also evoked as a formal reference.

Contradicting a narrow formalism, I look for the poetics of concepts and the possibility of extrapolation, which the character of each title also encloses.
