The natural beauty of Costa Rica is the prime inspiration and subject of Alexis D. Gaillard’s abstract works.
The artist cuts out and assembles elements from nature for the eye to focus on. The playfulness of light and texture emphasizes dynamics and colors. From there are intuitively born his arcs of photographic compositions. The camera becomes a brush that transforms reality without betraying it.
“The eye is the motor of the work “, and it reads different versions of what is shown. These games in geometry and symmetries open new depths, volumes, rhythms, and offers an infinite spectrum of perceptions. The repetitive effect creates vibrations that take the viewer to an other place: a visual subconscious.
Constantly looking for new innovations, the artist works tirelessly on searching into colors, textures and light. Borrowing some techniques and theories from the arts of painting and street art, the artist continues his questioning on perception, vibrations and visual dynamics.
