The word “kaleidoscopic” suggests lines forms, colors and textures shifting from one set of relations to another; forming extremely complex and varied patterns. The works of art in Kaleidoscopic reflect this reality.
In the process of making art, the artist can be seen as metaphysician, as alchemist capable of transforming and transcending materials and objects. Artists endow material with magical powers and properties that transform matter into art and into a valuable spiritual commodity.
It is important to remember that abstraction is a language. The language of color, space and form is universal and aims at all of mankind. Abstraction is about faith, about suspension of disbelief; it's about the unknown, and making visible the invisible.This is the nature of and challenge inherent in making art.
