“Planned Iridescence” aims to exhibit the artistic output of the internationally known and brilliant talent that is reinventing and bringing to another level the Optical and Kinetic Art tradition. Felipe Pantone’s body of work spans from graffiti to installations to “traditional” paintings.
Strong contrasts, vivid colors, effects, and the use of mixed medium and varied technique combine to impact strongly on the viewer. What really intrigues it’s not the striking nature of his work, but the artist’s journey to discover this aesthetic, that leads him to never stop experimenting in order to maintain his artistic research always bright and to bring it to the next level. In particular, symbolizing the attitude of the artist, this exhibition is a revelation, showing an advanced full experience, impossible to explain with words.
For his first Solo show in NYC Felipe Pantone is arranging an astonishing design planning, uncovering for the first time a new series of works, in fact “Planned Iridescence” is the title of these new works which are the product of years of research in his quest to evoke digital experiences through inanimate objects. Made with a unique iridescent material that allows the artist to regulate light spectrum gradients in every aspect of color, repetition, directional displacement and rotation.
Movement is activated by the viewer’s position in front of the work, creating an individual interactive participation that he perceives as cyber encounters. In order to maximize this experience, Pantone is also relying on new technologic supports and different spaces dimension, able to expand the exhibition out from the traditional boundaries.
