Jorge Pedro Nuñez (b.1976, Venezuela)

Jorge Pedro Nuñez was born in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1976. He currently lives and works in Paris. His work intends to perform short circuits between “high culture” and “popular culture.”While focusing on the revision of the history of geometric abstraction, he reflects on historical and modern forms by superimposing historical references from very different backgrounds.

He is interested in themes inherent to art such as the status of the artwork and the status of its creator, or the production and reception of artworks in a specific context. In this revision of the history of geometric abstraction in modernity, the reflection upon and the production of his pieces undergo distortions in their reinterpretation (with humor and irony) using existing objects and inexpensive production materials. Thus, they generate tensions between a certain memory and a novel proposal, creating a resonance in a new context.
