metalocus, JOSÉ JUAN BARBA
Ivan Juarez is back in Europe for this project in Norway. he is able to sweat the landscape and the materials you use in your projects, designs Ivan Juarez never leave the viewer unmoved. A strong perception of colors, textures, images and value of a lush green landscape, from the geometry of a cylinder open to its environment, and closed in on itself to launch a vertical look. An excellent project, which again we have to congratulate the author. Thanks.

A landscape with an uneven geography, acquiesced by valleys and archipelagos. An exuberant nature, where acres of pine forest shade the ground covered with moss, vanishing among the mist.

The piece emerges from the ground creating a new space, setting up a new a perception of the forest. Entering in to the piece, the perception of the landscape changes, visually blocking the forest, leading the glance above, where a fragment of the landscape frames the sky with its own vegetation.
