Jorge Pedro Núñez (born 1976 in Caracas, Venezuela; lives and works in Paris, France).
Rendition of Vladimir Tatlin’s 1915 counter-reliefs.
“I am interested in combining and juxtaposing different historical referents that derive from diverse places and times, and which coexist in an object.
My work is related to drawing, sculpture, and painting rom their more basic properties, such as material and form, but the materials I use are mostly objects from other activities. I use recognizable icons stemming from modern art history, in the creation of a work that goes through deconstruction and the relationship of objects and ideas that question the link between abstraction, history, and contemporaneity.”
