Colombian artist Gustavo Vélez to showcase sculptures at Oblong Contemporary Art Gallery in Dubai
Colombian artist Gustavo Vélez, known for his sculptures which embody a certain creative fluidity will showcase his artworks at the Oblong Contemporary Art Gallery on the Blue Waters Island from October 1-December 1, 2020. Along with a virtual online exhibition that can be viewed on Oblong website curated by Italian curator Susanna Campolonghi, featuring 15 artworks of Gustavo Velez, from end of October 2020 to the end of January 2021.
One of the most prominent artists from Medellin, Colombia, Gustavo Vélez sculptural process is the result of the figurative artist’s interpretation, abstracted from the reality of our world. Vélez transforms the matter into works that play between the figurative and the conceptual, between forms easily identifiable and others more abstract, full of movement, light, shadow and search of the infinite.
Entwining elegant lines, the thin, light sculptures depict Vélez’s particular way of creating tri-dimensional shapes. From every angle, their forms are seamless and lines, dynamic; their shapes change when light changes, giving the spectator an infinite, pleasant possibility of viewing the pieces.
