The Light and Mirrors of Ivan Navarro
May 12, 2011 by Rainey - metalsmithing, sculpture
Ivan Navarro creates hanging and free standing sculptures of lights and mirrors, creating the illusion of depth. Some of his newer work draws inspiration from the blueprints of world famous skyscrapers.
Within each work, Navarro has incorporated significant words or phrases like SURRENDER, RESIST, and YOU SAY YES, which echo like suggestions or commands through each structure’s illusory depth.
