As Deleuze would say, the artist goes to the “conquest of surfaces” to give them sense, to endow them with depth and to give them a new history. The meticulous luminous boxes of Carlos Rivera, realized by addition of layers of adhesive tape, only show what they ¬†represent only if they are to be illuminated. These deployments as much chaotic as much as organized of sharp blades on colored painted supports become abstract compositions.
