Uribe creates sculptures which are not sculpted but constructed and weaved, in all kinds of different ways, curious and unpredictable, repetitive and almost compulsive. They follow the classics canons of figurative and abstract art, but the result is absolutely unusual, whimsical, of enormous efficacy and communicability. When observed from close, his works reveal various kinds of interpretations; they invite us to touch them, to discover the detail and connection between one element and another. When viewed form further away, they offer volumes, forms, textures and color. Distance, proximity and perception are key factors in the interaction between Uribe’s work and its viewers.

I just wanted to share this artists work on my blog. It reminds me that you dont always have to paint with paint. You can make an illustration more that just about the content, but instead intrigue the viewer into getting lost in the textures and materials used. i would like to try to use Frederico’s artwork to inspire me to push my work, push my creativity and see the possibilities in things around us.
At the moment, there are a million mosquitoes in my room. I would like to kill them and use them for art! The jerks are always biting me and i fear that I will get malaria again! revenge!
too dark? sorry.
