Pablo Posada Pernikoff’s work is an abstract expression of his observations of matter: how it flows through time and space and transforms as nature’s forces act upon it. He seeks to unconsciously stimulate a harmonious relationship between the viewer and his work, transcending cultural, geographical, and time barriers. Works born out of crystal, obsidian or glass are hand carved and treated with acids and other techniques in order to produce different textures pertaining to the material. Deep carvings set into the glass create areas of light and shadow that evoke the ethereal and changing concept of movement, while reliefs formed out of paper and metal express movements that have been frozen in time.


Pablo Posada Pernikoff was born in Spain in 1964 and raised between Paris and 

Bogota. He is both a Colombian and French citizen. After seeking studies in engineering and mathematics, in Colombia and Canada, he traveled to Italy to study design and fine arts. In 1990 Posada moved to Japan, thanks to a number of research grants offered by the Japanese government in Osaka, Kyoto and Tokio. In 1998 he earned a PhD from the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music. Presently Posada Pernikoff does not have a permanent residence. He travels incessantly around the world, searching for simple and deep experiences that might inspire him to create works of profound harmony and serenity.
