Juan Rosenfeldt

 

As if dioramas from the story of Coelho's Alchemist, the works of Juan Rosenfeldt transform found objects of earthly time into contained experiences of eternal aesthetic contemplation.

He creates a visual correlation to Borges' magical realism suffused with the surrealism of Meret Oppenheim, and Joseph Cornell. In examining the delicate balances of computer parts, butterflies, stamps and string, we discover the fragile nature of our existence and the sheer wonder of it's fruition.

 

"I believe in the language of symbols, because they carry the power to transcend barriers, allowing us to grow beyond the limitations of culture, intellectual dogma and, ultimately, personal identity. "
