My work is about nature. Forms such as circles, spirals, and spheres play a crucial role in most of the subject matter, embodying the qualities of an infinite universe that is somehow contained. Unlike science, my findings consider the spiritual connotations of the physical such as the duality of a timeless self within a transitory body. In this light, common patterns found in nature are extracted and reconfigured formally in order to transcend the surface of their image to enter a place of sublimity.

The immaterial is the sensitive reality of the universe. Art is the sensitive knowledge of the immaterial. To be aware of the immaterial in a state of pure structure is to cover the last stretch of the road toward the absolute.

–Jesus Soto
