My creative work focuses on an abstract language of three-dimensional mobile geometric shapes and gives rise to being able to combine with each other inside the support, sometimes they can also be placed outside the support, since the mobile geometric shapes are attached to the support by magnets. This work being three-dimensional I name interactive wall sculpture.
THE POSITIONS OF THE MOBILE: The possibility of moving parts that make up the work, offers me the discovery of other positions. I find it interesting that an open work can show all the possibilities of interesting positions that I can find. I keep the record of each position in a photo, drawings, video, etc. Thus generating a compilation of all the positions that belong to the work. Whoever owns it can try under their responsibility to discover new positions. The fact that the position can be modified does not mean that it moves and changes at random, but it requires a previous effort of imaginative reflection of how the new position can work.
Based in: Vigo
He was born in Zamora SPAIN, in 1960. Self-taught.
In 1971 Manuel Izquierdo moved to Galicia with his family. In adolescence, he began to experiment with the plastic arts as a hobby, making a figurative painting. In the 1980s, art was taken as an existential, emotional necessity, and he worked complementing it with other trades that will help him financially to live.
In the 1980s he experimented with paintings in a neo-expressionist and abstract style
In 1990 he moved to Madrid and shared a housing workshop with other colleagues, it was in this decade where he began and developed his most unique work, interactive mobiles.
In Madrid he participated in the random art platform that formed a group of painters gathered together to a common link in the work, the combinatorial, this link was called Random Painting: An exhibition is held at the Arena gallery in Madrid, Manuel Izquierdo presented a work that can be hung in 13 different positions on the wall, representing the reading of position changes with two bodies that make up the work and a support that presents the 13 positions, hanging next to the work.
In 2000 he left his workshop in Madrid and moved back to Vigo working in his new workshop in the Conde de Torrecedeira street. Currently he continues to develop his work alone.
