An Artist to Follow
by Elida Román
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.
