FALCONE "Often Imitated Never Equalled"
Falcone is an artist and designer with deep roots in art history. The art foundation of his grandfather, who was passionate about geometric and kinetic works, was his childhood playground. The unstructured paintings of Carmelo Arden Quin intrigued him, and he played with the reliefs of Agam and Soto. Circles and squares, infinitely supported by form and color, lead him to go further, to multiply the image endlessly. He positions his creations between experience and contemplation. The artist chooses LEDs, neon, fiber optics and mirrors to express himself. Isn't art a form of illusion? So why not an optical illusion? With these materials, his works are experienced live by spectators. He plays with space, between plays of light and infinite effects. The spectator sees his reflection projected into an abyss of points of light. There's no doubt that Falcone's immense success places him directly in the tradition of the great kinetic artists.
