The Element: Ricardo Pascale at Galería del Paseo, Punta del Este.
The Uruguayan artist Ricardo Pascale presents the exhibition 'El Elemento' in Galería del Paseo (Punta del Este - Lima).
Renato Rita comments:
"Swirling in the convent of the mind, the particles of deception crowd together, claiming, with opportune joy, the impetuous consensus of the spirit. Pascale, administering the emotional engineering, militates in the wood, lath and wedge, indentation and size; words provided by the wood where Ricardo expands the decision that transcends it. Set in the occasional auspicious wall, these rectangular particles, with sober relief, embrace the lucky spectator with the synthesis of a cosmic epiphany. "
