ESCHER / The Exhibition & Experience (5)


Inside kind of labyrinth...“Infinity Room”, mirrors facing mirrors chamber, amid strings of repeating shapes-like M.C. Escher's "Flying Fish" artwork.

Visitors coming to see this new edition of the 'Escher international show' have several chances to interact with some of the artist's  concepts and creations as well.  Getting inside the famous "Crystal Ball" with my own reflexion...was awesome!

Centro de Exposiciones Arte Canal / Escher. El arte de lo imposible / 2007

ESCHER / The Exhibition & Experience (2)

This image is from a printed program of "m.c. Escher / El arte de lo imposible" traveling show, at Canal de Isabel II, Madrid, Spain.  In 2007 I made a very special trip from New York City to Madrid in order to be personally able to see it because, obviously, it was so important to me.

selgasArt / Tapestry-Some (4)

'Hung as tapestries'...a serie of 'acrylic on folded canvas' I've been working on since 2012. The very 'textile' aspet created by the fact of no having stretchers as support and never 'going flat' on the wall, give them a kind of sculptural presence.

selgasArt / Tapestry-Some (2)

"La Habana para una Infanta difunta" is an sculpture-assemblage  made out of men's belts as a 'Hoop skirt' secured by screws and nuts.  On top; atresso for the hard base-of-torso, and peplum  cover by 'my own web work' using hemp rope treated with heavy medium acrylic, decorated by metal-nuts as 'pretend-Jewellery' and a carved-wooden hand holding an already-made Cuban flag.
The title plays a phonetic trick on  Ravel's "Pavana para una Infanta difunta". 'Infanta' is (was) also a major Avenue in Havana's so well known 'glorious past' before the actual nightmare.
