About Rafael Barrios

Rafael Barrios’s geometric sculptures manipulate the eye into seeing depth in flat sheets of brightly colored metal. Adopting a sculptural vernacular pioneered by such figures as Joel Shapiro, Barrios subverts the three-dimensional essence of sculpture by shaping planar sheets to resemble carefully stacked and engineered objects. Such works often appear in public contexts, such as Park Avenue in New York. Though positioned as sculpture, his work’s Op Art elements equally align it with painting, effectively blurring the boundaries between the two media.

Venezuelan, b. 1947, Baton Rouge, Louisiana
