STATEMENT ABOUT PUZZLE ART & 4D

“A brand new technique in the visual art! By moving and or switching the canvasses on the diptych, triptych and polyptych the image transformation takes place. I named it Puzzle Art. In addition, that technique represents the fourth dimension. I named it 4D.   

PUZZLE ART & 4D could revolutionize the way of creation in the visual arts and I hope it awakens all people to the fourth dimension.

 

As the technique has never been done in the visual art and as I have never seen a painting made by a technique like that, I think, I have made my contribution to the art world".

4D SCIENTIFIC EXPLANATION

Scientifically, the fourth dimension is represented when the third dimension formed by three axes (x, y, z) represents a cube. This cube moves in a fourth axis (w), which representes the time dimension, by changing the information in the cube and with time shift so you have a hypercube. That is what happens with my artwork when the canvasses, each one representing 3D, move and or switch sides changing the image (information) and having the time shift.

  

MY INTENTIONS AND MY GOALS

For a longtime artists represent the 3D (depth) on 2D surface (canvas, wood etc). However, Pablo Picasso anticipated the fourth dimension on 2D canvas in his cubist period. I started to make diptych, triptych and polyptych influenced by cubism, then I've evolved into that new technique since 1987 up to now and I will continue developing it. I’d like to encourage other artists to try the same technique. I think it’s time for upgrade – from 3D to 4D - and we should set the fourth dimension as a new trend in the visual arts.

It would be amazing to display them using a robot to change the images every 1 or 2 minutes. Resulting in an interesting integration of robotics into the visual arts.
