Rodrigo Echeverri Calero. Astilla en el ojo
Echeverriâ€™s artwork is constructed with various types of mediums from acrylic/oil paints to wood dye on canvas, medium density fiberboard, and wood. With these materials, he creates the illusion of celestial bodies of boxes colliding and floating into larger entities, referring to an idea of chaos linked to moments of crisis and destruction. It is a gesture that paradoxically has been compiled from geometric order. His approach evokes different perspectives of suspended boxes depending on the angle from which they are viewed. His work eliminates the boundary between painting and sculpting as it unilaterally displays two-dimensional and three-dimensional points of view. Echeverriâ€™s interest in texture and form begins with a cube shape that is ordinary, yet he uses colors such as red to create depth and illusion.
