Castelli (Buenos Aires, 1947) works with a poetic of irony, of the dreamlike and of naivety to present issues that fascinate and also concern him. Wood, as a “moldable” material, has accompanied him since his Basque ancestors, just as imagery is his Catalan legacy. From the language of drawing and sculpture, he engages in social and political issues that can be glimpsed behind the impossible landscapes that he invites us to look at.
