'Jade Gem Wave' is a new work by Hugo G. Urrutia part of his ongoing series of 'Flexible Rigids' where he explores sculptural forms that simulate smooth harmonic movements of a flexible surface, initiating the process from a “rigid surface".
Hugo is a multidisciplinary artist-designer, interested in the cross-pollination between art and architecture. His artwork challenges the notion of what constitutes a piece of art. A graduate and active member of the Architectural Association in the United Kingdom, Urrutia’s work creates a distinct spatiality located at the interstice of art and architecture. His work explores and uses technology for design and fabrication, with a sensitive and conscious reminder of the creativity of human endeavor.
Interested in conveying a strong concept and exploring different mediums, he presents his message in a very indirect format, while creating visual simulation for the viewer.
