Eugenio Espinoza's work Nuclear Reaction were inspired by his profound interest in Picasso's La Guitarra. Executed in painted aluminum and hand cut, the planes hang precariously over metal shelf brackets. These planes are not joined but simply hanging loose, one over the other.
Marcus Margall has been investigating the works of the golden age of Venezuelan geometric art from the 50s and 60s, especially Alejandro Otero and Jesus Soto. By his juxtaposition of aspects and fragments of Sot's works, Margall transforms his work into a true field of visual experimentation. With a playful vocation on the construction of these works, as in Hence Kinectical Wink, he invades the graphic lines in the work of Jesus Soto with texts that reference contemplation, the unconscious act of looking, and phrases of a disquieting humor.
MPG, 2015 is an accumulative provenance-based composition that approximately quantifies the amount of gasoline required by the average North American mid-size automobile with regards to the presentation of the work itself. As of it's current showing and at 26 gallons of gasoline, the project accounts for 680 travelled miles: Archer, FL to Miami Beach, FL, to Archer, FL.
In the words of Nicolas Guagnini, "Unlike most art with a clearly defined political agenda, Sergio Vega's work is oneiric, subtle, sometimes hilarious, and other times surprisingly demanding.
