Fermin Fleites’ recent work exhibited at the Praxis Art Gallery reinforces his multiple merits. He has the ability to bring together seemingly unrelated visual styles in an “ordered chaos” that make us jump from classical Greek and German Renaissance images to the most contemporary art forms, such as installations or conceptual art. In the process, his well informed gaze directs us to popular products and images associated with symbols, rituals, and magical beliefs practiced through time.

His work stands as a testament to the power of symbiosis, weaving together elements that, while seemingly incongruent, find harmony and new meaning within his artistic vision.

Fermin Fleites Morffi’s artistry manifests as a testament to his creative evolution, exemplified through the harmonious fusion of language within his works. His artistic journey compels audiences towards introspection and contemplation, employing a rich tapestry of metaphorical allusions. Morffi intricately weaves current societal dilemmas with elements of magical realism, establishing a recurring motif throughout his oeuvre. He articulates this approach by integrating visual motifs drawn from what he perceives as a blend of magic and mythology in the contemporary world. These motifs are intended to unlock both conscious and subconscious responses in the viewer, reflecting the interconnectedness of cultural achievements and the communal spirit that forms the backbone of human identity. This interplay of mythical and magical elements with the personal subconscious highlights the depth of Fleite’s exploration into human nature, nature, society and the individual.

 

The Magic of confluence

Fleites’ art is a dialogue of symbols, a conversation where disparity is merely a facade, revealing a robust conceptual foundation beneath.
