Maxwell Davidson Gallery presents, C0DE, a solo exhibition of new work by Pedro S. de Movellán. This exhibition features outdoor work on the terraces, indoor works on the tenth floor, and a large-scale installation on the gallery’s ninth floor.

 

The exhibition title refers to de Movellán’s own aesthetic language, the common thread that links his works – each wholly unique – into a cohesive series, and which is visible within the greater arc of his career. Secondly, the genetic code that makes us all who we are is particularly pertinent in de Movellán’s case. The son of an architect and an abstract painter, de Movellan makes work that reflects that unique pairing in his unrivaled combination of precision form and artistic sensibility. Finally, Code references the digital language that the artist taught himself in order to help program his large installation.

 

This installation will be de Movellán’s largest and most complex indoor work to date. Hanging from the ceiling, the installation uses unique computer coding programmed by the artist to operate the fans and lights that accompany the sculptural elements. The work is entirely self-sufficient, made to both generate and define motion. In this case, the LED lights add to the sensation of randomness, both in their chaotic travel attached to the elements, and in their precisely written programming. It serves as the first in a future series in which de Movellán will work more with light control and its cooperation with motion, combining his mastery of the analog world of sculpture with the continually advancing digital realm.

 

For nearly 25 years, de Movellán has proven himself as one of the most talented and progressive kinetic sculptors in the world. This exhibition is de Movellán’s twelfth with the gallery. The artist lives and works in West Stockbridge, MA.
