From Hector Esrawe , Parabola, parabolas made of brass, “Reflection based on how the light travels through a solid surface, the beginning and the end, the darkness, the gloom to the dawn, on tension and flexion, in the parabolas of Felix Candela.” “The path of the light in each of the versions, is conditioned by the metal, in its scale, in its surface and in its expression, also on its repetition, which conferees an architectonic quality to each one of them. The poetry of the shadows, the absence of light which is as relevant as its presence.” “The starting points where the brass layer touches base, establish the origin for every light element, meaning, the number of brass layers indicate the amount of light elements in each piece.” Parabola is represented by MASA Galeria, which opened with its first exhibition Collective/Collectible in February 2019 in Mexico City.
