Iran do Espírito Santo at Sean Kelly Gallery

Opening on March 21st at Sean Kelly Gallery in New York, Iran do Espirito Santo’s Switch solo exhibition continues the Brazilian artist’s concerns with materiality and its play with surface, minimalism and the enigmatic.  The black and white exhibition consists of 3 distinct works:  latex wall paintings, that confound the viewer in its elegant geometry and optical glow; marble objects, titled Globes, that blur the line between utilitarian, artefact and art objects; and the Untitled – Folded Mirrors series, large scale black mirrors  that lean on the gallery walls and floor, folded in geometric angles.  Espirito Santo’s work finds common grounds between function vs. the sublime; the sheer elegance of his objects attest to the seductive play between pristine surfaces and texture and the unknown.
