Nacho Carbó – Fernando Clemente – Juan Suárez

Geometry marks everything: from the grid of the streets in a modern city, to a beehive with its hexagonal cells; from mineral and crystal formations to the shapes of starfish or the branches of any plant.

This exhibition, ‘Implicit Geometries’ , creates a map of contrasts that is harmonious in its conception. To this end, a criterion of affinities has been established in the assembly of the works, working on groups of pieces by the three participating authors, two architects and plastic artists and a painter —Juan Suárez, Nacho Carbó and Fernando Clemente—, respectively, who will share the spaces of the hall.

The implicit geometry will be one of the attractions of the exhibition. The invited authors will show works from different periods, and in all of them geometry will be more or less present.

The project is not interested in purity but in mixed works that have a structure and that, precisely because of this gift, open more doors.

Nacho Carbó (Castellón, Spain, 1975) works with a fervent gaze on nature. His works, made mainly with vegetal elements, bring a rather unusual dimension of geometry, both in his micro-architectures and in his Haikus, which are warm and organic.

Juan Suárez (El Puerto de Santa María, Spain, 1946) modulates his work in series that deal with constructive structures, series in which material and color confer a false rigidity.

Fernando Clemente (Jerez de la Frontera, Spain, 1975) creates works in which the organic coexists with blurred structures, which gives them a character of great spontaneity, poetic works that dialogue very directly with the viewer.

There have been many —perhaps too many— exhibitions on geometry. In this case, the three artists have a certain irreverence and lack of rigidity. The title, almost a joke, is practically a declaration of intentions, an unprejudiced look in which there is room for endless possibilities.
