Gerard Fernández Rico

Barcelona, 1977

Over the years Gerard has implemented different materials from our everyday environment in his works. Along the way, he has worked with polymers (liquids/solids), thermal blankets, tarpaulins , construction structures (scaffolding), automotive industry materials, industrial lighting (fluorescent and spotlights), among others. Fernández Rico’s process includes in most occasions, the reformulation of the material, sometimes through its manipulation, intervention, or its disposition in an exhibition context; by adding the necessary elements he achieves its complete transfiguration into an artistic work.

This time-perpetuated work methodology is a daily challenge in the studio. Creating a coherent and recognizable line over time.

The viewer’s confrontation with an artistic object made with techniques and materials from other industries offers a personal interpretation of our context. Detecting the proposed transfiguration and inviting us to reflect on our environment and the possibilities it offers us beyond the commonly accepted ones; and the way in which each one of us interacts with it.
