Spanish artist and sculptor Jorge Palacios presents new work in New York

NEW YORK, NY.- Fridman Gallery presents an outdoor installation, Sketch in the air, by the Spanish sculptor Jorge Palacios. The sculpture will be on view outside the Trump Soho New York (246 Spring Street, corner of Varick Street). Coinciding with the outdoor installation, Steven Harris + Rees Roberts will present Convergences, a solo exhibition by Palacios, showcasing some of his latest works and pieces never before exhibited in New York City.

Palacios's work has attracted the interest of such legendary names in architecture as New York-based Peter Marino, Hernández de la Garza from Mexico, and Eric Owen Moss from California. The artist has brought his sculptural works to public spaces in capital cities and cities of cultural heritage all over the world and has been described in art publications as one of the most important emerging artists. Following in the footsteps of such masters as Eduardo Chillida or, more recently, Jaume Plensa, Jorge Palacios (b. 1979, Madrid) has joined the list of representatives of Spanish art on the international stage.

Palacios's work explores abstract forms to test the limits of material, line and restrained expression. A balance is established between the sculpted material and sculpted air, as the works explore the dichotomy between soundness and lightness. The shapes reveal a permanent tension between line and curve. The title of the exhibition is a reference to the different convergences between lines and planes, which reveal to us the path taken by the artist through the realms of geometric and organic abstraction.

Anatxu Zabalbeascoa, the architecture critic and curator, writes: "His work speaks to the brain through touch and by the relation it establishes with space and time. However, his sculptures also speak to us through the eye. They are touched by sight. (…) Palacios's work is irreducible and essential. But also contained, geometrically complex, singular. It is that concise form that confers specificity, character, humanity. It is not the sum of parts, but the reduction of an idea until it lacks parts, condensed, a single piece. Jorge Palacios's sculpture is of eloquent gesture. In the singular: one only gesture per piece."

Born in Madrid in 1979, Jorge Palacios has explored the realms of science and nature to discover pure and essential geometric masses and forms, in many cases molecular. He finds inspiration in these shapes to reach maximum expressiveness through minimal expression.

In spite of his youth, Jorge Palacios has exhibited alongside internationally recognized artists, such as Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, Sol Lewitt, Olafur Eliasson, Jean Tinguely, Ernesto Neto, Michelangelo Pistoletto, and John Baldessari.

His sculptures have been exhibited globally in Canada, Switzerland, and the US, and are featured in both private and public collections. He has participated in major international art fairs in the US, Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy, and other countries; and has participated in international projects for numerous cities including Toronto, Seoul, Chaco, Panama City, New Orleans, etc.

Palacios's track record as a creator of site-specific projects reveals his keen interest in establishing a dialogue between his sculptures and their surroundings and the importance of this dialogue for his particular conception of art. To undertake or materialize these types of projects, Palacios has teamed up with major architecture and landscape design firms.
