Gabriel Barredo’s (b. 1957) work is to create entire opuses. He builds them through months of bricolage, sketching and painting, elevating his sculptures to nearly theatrical lengths, immersive for the viewer, featuring numerous pieces both large and small, some of them simple drawings, others motorised, along with object-led side-narratives -- with all of it accompanied by sound and light.* The highly reclusive artist has pioneered kinetic sculpture in the Philippines and his work is included in many important local collections.
