Felipe Gayo

Born in 1938 - France


Every Felipe Gayo work means Exigency, Rigor, Beauty. It introduces behind our view some truths usually hidden and proves that, behind the look of things, some laws are ruling us. The most advance physical science teaches us that, in the beginning of the Universe, during the Big Bang – 15 billion years ago without a doubt – the power that determined the expansion of pinhead sized worlds and incredible strength, had, by exploding, shattered the Perfect Symmetry constituting it.

The matrix of this perfection stayed in every atom – like a holographic sign – allowing every combination and all the structures of Material and Life – Beings and Things – and explains how it evolved, like the galaxies expansion. Our brightest philosophers, since Anaximander, Heraclites, Democritus, Parmenides, Pythagoras and Plato, had intuitively the premonitions Science only now unveils. But thoughts need to be revealed by senses and Reason to find their value.

The Artists role is to be just like explorers, at the forefront of research, bringing back gems of truth able to insufflate life into everyone. Felipe Gayo is one of them – his astonishing constructions build from these so fragile materials. One can think a sigh could scatter them away. On the contrary, they have the absolute power! His matches, sticks, pins, are composing the magical triangles and the shapes of Intelligence and Imagination, of perfect geometry like the one in the harmony of spheres and the music from Bach.

When Vasarely and Agam made their entrance on the Art scene – with great success- they hadn’t, both of them, an inspiration richer and with more qualities than their junior today, whose originality and talent will become a style our time won’t forget.
