Personally, I think the Halcyon Gallery in Mayfair overdoes its Warhol collection. I know it has to make money to survive, but it is much more interesting when it shows work by a contemporary modern artist, as it did with Pedro Paricio over the summer, who took the centre stage in the gallery space, though behind him the Warhols were still looming.
Pedro is a Spanish artist, born in Tenerife in 1982, and his work has that vibrant colour that is often a keynote of Spanish artists, but he is much more geometric, playing games with shapes and with three dimensional forms that change as you walk around them, particularly if the lighting creates changing shadows at the same time – something on which the Halcyon Gallery disappointed with lighting that was too bright and reflective, as you can see in the photographs.
As Pedro states “Quantum physics is like a coin spinning in the air that you stop with your gaze, like poetry, like art. Then the same coin keeps spinning and stopping forever, showing a different face every time at a glance, and the glance is what builds the History of Art and the History of our Civilization”
