Felipe Goncalves: SIGHT, SOUND, TOUCH, TASTE, SMELL
We are vessels of observation, according to artist Felipe Goncalves. Our senses - touch, taste, sight, smell, sound - allow us to interpret the particles of existence around us. Watch as Goncalves explains why we don’t create, but rather manipulate what already is.
Felipe Goncalves creates work which entices viewers to enter a world that is normally obscured by reason and fear. Death, childhood, and glitter are nostalgic devices meant to leave one giggling in the face of terror. Goncalves graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2004, and has exhibited his works throughout the country.
