Gustavo Pérez Monzón Cuba, b. 1956

"MY WORKS ARE NOT RELATED TO SCIENCE OR TECHNOLOGY, THEY ARE SUPPORTED BY ARITHMETIC OR RATHER NUMEROLOGICAL CONCEPTS". IN NUMEROLOGY, NUMBERS EXPRESS NOT ONLY QUANTITIES, THEY ALSO CONTAIN MEANINGS AND THEREFORE, RELATIONSHIPS THAT PROVIDE A CERTAIN ORDER"

 

By combining art and epistemology, Gustavo shows a particular interest in logic and meaning. Although his work is based on a conceptual art frame - as well as a sensitivity to Geometric Abstraction, Abstract Expressionism and Spatialism, he resorts to sources as varied as mathematics, numerology and occultism, as well as existentialism and our own relationship to the universe. In his paintings, drawings, sculptures and great scale installations, Perez Monzón uses organic materials and geometric shapes to give importance to space and the sensory stimulation provided by its transformation.
