The exhibition comprises a series of polychromatic sculptures, executed in acrylic-glass and other synthetic materials. Suspended from the walls and the ceiling, seemingly floating in the gallery space, they create an impression of levity that has come to be identified as the signature style of the artist. Formally, the sculptures oscillate between biomorphic, crystalline and fluid shapes, a playful indeterminacy that is further emphasized through their reflective surfaces, as well as the bright symphonies of neon colors. Juxtaposing formal and chromatic registers, the works appear both effusive and measured, dense and ephemeral. With their multifaceted visual vocabulary, they let the viewer encounter sculpture’s essential plasticity – its potential of inhabiting, modulating and animating space.
