PARIS.- Danysz gallery
s latest discovery, the young Barcelona artist David Moreno, creates delicate floating cities composed of steel rods and piano strings. From February 16th, Moreno presents his first solo show in Paris at Danysz Gallery.
Moreno's works are light and seem to float in the air, as if they were levitating against the wall. His work is meticulous : each line is welded with finesse and precision. The piano strings blend with the metal rods in a clever balance between flexibility of the curve and straightness of the structure. Depending on the perspective, the lines are either crossing or simply juxtaposed.
Moreno shares that through his art he "aims at drawing sculpture". Moreno strongly believes that sketch and sculpture are similar ; he creates fully graphic three-dimensional works that could be reminiscent of architects' sketches. He uses metal as one would use pencil to draw on paper, yet adding a third dimension.
Moreno who claims to be a sculptor as much as a draftsman creates real worlds, one could say « atmospheres », that makes us travel. Contemplating his pieces is like losing yourself in them. One does not simply look at them. We project ourselves into them, we imagine the person at the heart of the house. In his sculptures-architectures, Moreno speaks about human bonds, about relationships that are created, to turn self-individuals into a community. The artists works are entitled "En comunidad" (in community) or "Proyecto de familia" (family project).
As critic Jeff D. Min puts it in Hi Fructose magazine : "Moreno is constantly exploring, connecting with people and embracing whatever his heart and mind brings. Moreno combines multiple disciplines to give life to his growing vision. In his world, nothing is impossible, all you have to do is look within and reach out". The discovery awaits you at the Danysz Gallery until April 6th.
