- CONTROL Gallery is pleased to announce Kosmos, the solo
debut at CONTROL Gallery from world-renowned Argentinian-Spanish visual artist Felipe Pantone.
Adopted from the Greek word for order, Kosmos finds Felipe Pantone in a harmonious place of balance
between a world of polar opposites where both extremes can be existential at the same place and time.
Jubilance, melancholy, light, dark and color are intertwined within these realities. The exhibition occupies
a place in the lap of order, where arrangement is seemingly perfect, yet the imperfections that exist
within the system are what set into motion works that celebrate how all forms are related and explore the
idea that the moments in between are those in which we live, feel and operate.
"I kept thinking about how all forms are perfectly related to all other forms, in the sense that I can be
happy or sad, things can be positive or negative, and yet everything is in perfect balance. That led me to
be inspired by Calder, then George Rickey, and other artists that worked around the idea of perfect
equilibrium. Kosmos is my exploration of that thought process,” shares Felipe Pantone.
Kosmos welcomes Pantone to Los Angeles for his first ever solo exhibition in the city and the debut of
the artist’s new SUBTRACTIVE VARIABILITY KOSMOS series, featuring a collection of works that
produce continuous motion for extended periods of time. This exploration of achieving perfect
equilibrium marks a new innovation from Pantone’s studio, which continues to push and expand the
boundaries of the kinetic art movement. United at the intersection of technology and fine art, the
Kosmos series is accompanied by a new collection of manipulatable works and contemporary paintings
that honor the digital age and cement Pantone's status as one of the most transcendent artists of his
time.

“Given the history of art in Southern California, it's only natural that Felipe's first solo exhibition in Los
Angeles not only puts light and space at the forefront, but genuinely breathes fresh life into movement via
his distinctly modern approaches,” shares Gallery Director Aurora Fisher.

Artist ( Description ): 

Felipe Pantone is an Argentinian-Spanish artist. He started doing graffiti at the age of 12, eventually
graduating with a Fine Art degree in Valencia, Spain, where his studio is currently based. Pantone evokes
a spirit in his work that feels like a collision between an analog past and a digitized future, where human
beings and machines will inevitably glitch alongside one another in a prism of neon gradients, geometric
shapes, optical patterns, and jagged grids. His work deals with dynamism, transformation, digital
revolution, and themes related to the present time. Pantone works on various forms of software, which is
then translated into frescoes, murals, paintings, and sculptures, giving tactile merit to what’s occurring in
the digital world. His applications are diverse and united by the intersection of technology and fine art.
