Cra. 16 #86A-31

Beatriz Esguerra Art has the pleasure of exhibiting Geometric Alignment, the most recent solo exhibition of Colombian artist Aníbal Gomescásseres on Thursday, June 7, 2018 at 7 pm.

His work is inspired by the concept of ¨sacred geometry,¨ or the belief that the geometry and mathematical ratios, harmonics and proportion of nature are also found in music, light and cosmology. Interpreted as such, one could perceive contemporary problems as disordered, or flawed geometry. The geometry, forms and flat colors found in these works presented are the result of a technical experimentation interwoven with a concern for what has become artificial nature and the realities that technology presents in our contemporary world.

Gomescásseres introduces the viewer to an augmented observation of our digital environment in which we move, where the screens in his works are transformed into sources of escape and meditation. The artist thus has adapted these electronic devices and turns them into pieces that respond before the presence of a body.

The artist describes his artistic practice as union of both plastic (sculptural) and artificial elements, which evoke a technoethical lifestyle. In addition to mitigating the sense of emptiness that can be brought on by the use of technology, these works invoke us to strengthen live and natural landscapes through a sense of meditation. It is here that his works serve as a fuse, inspiring the viewer in a transcendental reflection.

The area of study where philosophy and technology meet is termed technoethics. It is in interdisciplinary area of investigation that analyzes the ethical dimensions of these systems and the practices that allow us to advance as a technological society.
