Rafael Domenech, a visual arts college junior from New World School of the Arts, will exhibit his body of work in an exhibition entitled Symplectic Structures. His first solo show in Miami, it explores the process of deconstruction in an effort to arrive at the foundation of once recognizable objects. Working on a numerous pieces, the monochromatic exhibition – which has taken over six months to complete – is comprised of three sculptures and 20 works on paper. Using found object such as wood, tape and fluorescent lighting, the composition is harmoniously created and curated in order to draw the viewer into an abstract world where shapes and forms move in and out of each other and the space they occupy, in a rhythmic pattern that is both, arbitrary and coherent.
“The show is a conceptual abstraction that is both, structural and experimental,” explained Domenech, “My goal is to free familiar images from their constraining boundaries and dissect them into their very basic and simplistic form in order to unfold how objects behave in two-dimensional and three-dimensional space. More importantly, I hope that by exploring the sensorial aspect of deconstruction I will be closer to uncovering my own identity as an artist.
Opening reception is Friday, November 8; 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM at NWSA@Artseen Gallery, 2215 NW 2nd Avenue, Miami. Symplectic Structures will be on view from November 8 – November 17, 2013 at NWSA@Artseen.
