Camilo Rojas, NWSA visual arts college alumnus with a BFA in Graphic Design and multidisciplinary designer currently based in Miami, will present his solo show titled CAMILO ROJAS: Power of unkNOWn at New World School of the Arts this month. Bringing typography to the foreground of his craft, Camilo often experiments with this art form by using words and letters as a visual medium to represent text in an innovative way and as an essential mean of expression. The show, which opens with a reception where Camilo will be present, consists of a series of text-based mirrors and light sculptures that will confront the viewers with the duality of words, spelling out simple but intriguing phrases/questions drawing each person that encounters them to attend the act of looking inward.
“My intention with this spatial installation is to give a new form to letters in an expressive, harmonious, and skillful manner,” explained Camilo. “By linking reflective materials, hidden messages, repetition, and the double meaning of words, an environment of thoughtfulness and playful encounter will be created in the gallery setting.”
CAMILO ROJAS: Power of unkNOWn opens with a Reception on November 14; 6 PM - 9 PM at the New World Gallery. 25 NE 2 Street, Miami. The show is free and open to the public.
The exhibition will be on view November 14 November 14 - December 20. Information at 305-237-3620.
