Art Madrid'24 – Víctor Goikoetxea – Erosión II (2023)
about Víctor Goikoetxea
Artist. Sculptor immersed in the investigation of the use and transformation of different materials, through which to generate an abstract production that continues with the surprising capacity of his figurative work, although in different registers. Metal, polycarbonate, resin, polystyrene or velvet are put at the service of a material creation, in which volume is also important. A volume that in Goikoetxea has in turn achieved absolute independence through its foray into sculpture,
He has participated in different exhibitions such as La Magie du Trompe-l'oeil, at the Jean-Jacques Gautier gallery in Chêne-Bougeries (Switzerland), which brings together nearly eighty pieces by nineteen artists specialized in pictorial illusionism; also at the Aquarium-Palacio del Mar (2010), his solo career has intensified as a result of a subsequent one at the Vetus Art gallery in Donostia/San Sebastián, which under the title From Figuration to Matter (2017) brings together figurative pieces with novel and evocative abstractions. Already the previous year, in the context of the European Capital of Culture Donostia 2016, he took part in the collective exhibition 16 artists from Gipuzkoa in the same gallery, with whose help he also participated in the Scope Art Fair in Basel and in the Galleria Pisacane Arte in Milan (both in 2018). In recent years he has organised new solo exhibitions, such as the one inaugurated by the Basque Luxury Studio (2019), headquarters of the association of companies in the luxury sector of the Basque Country, Public Art (2019), at the Casa del Cable in Jávea (2019), or Materia en Movimiento, in Recoleto, in the same town in Alicante (2022).
