Since the early 2000’s Lui Ferreyra has been working with a signature fragmented style.
Lui Ferreyra technique, which is arguably the most prominent feature of his work, should not be thought of as mere embellishment. There’s a double move at play here. The first move is substantiated by a geometric matrix which functions as surface: it embraces and emphasizes the aspect of flatness within a complex network of geometric shapes, each unique unto itself.
The second move is fulfilled by the cumulative effect of all the shapes functioning together as a color-field in which each shape contextualizes every other shape, thereby providing all the necessary visual cueing to manifest a kind of window one can look through. Surface and window, at and through, like language which points both at the world and back at itself.
Lui Ferreyra is a Denver, Colorado-based artist who received his BFA at the University of Colorado Boulder.
