Opening Thursday, November 21st at John Berggruen Gallery, San Francisco is an exhibition of new kinetic sculpture by American artist Pedro S. de Movellán. The show marks the artist’s first solo exhibition in San Francisco, and will be on view through December 28th, 2013. The exhibition will coincide with the publishing of de Movellán’s catalogue raisonné “Pedro S. de Movellán: Complete Works 1990-2012,” written by Maxwell Davidson IV and Charles C. Davidson, and published by Schiffer Publishing Ltd.
Pedro S. de Movellán is considered one of the world’s most well known kinetic sculptors alive today. The son of an abstract painter and an architect, de Movellán perfectly balances both of their influences in his own work, along with the influence of modern masters Alexander Calder and George Rickey. Each work is unique, precisely constructed to be refined and detailed, yet unpredictable in its motion. His sculptures invite both a playful curiosity and an educated investigation into the physics of his careening constructions.
Opening Reception: Thursday, November 21st, 2013. 5:30-7:30pm
