As Multilayered as a Kaleidoscope
Research done on the complex relationship between spatial and temporal dimensions plays a central role in the works of Pere Bruix. Whether they are paintings, sculptures or artistic installations, Bruix’s art tries to combine and harmonize the visual and pictorial with the metaphysical. His works are multilayered like kaleidoscopes and can therefore be interpreted in more than one way. In the hands of Bruix, the “Sideglow” fibers mutate from a purely functional lighting solution to a material from which dreams are made. Thus, endless lighting design possibilities open up in order to create previously unimaginable new effects.

dares to multiply the number of things
that we are, that result in our fate.
and afterwards another, another, another…
