Something Fresh from Reinoso


Pablo Reinoso's designs utter nothing but elegance and sophistication. Without compromising his oeuvre, Reinoso remarkably puts forward a vivid recollection of wabi-sabi aesthetics in his latest experimentation.


In his series, Tools, Reinoso re-imagines the existence of the everyday tool. Commonly seen as mass-produced, replaceable and/or durable objects, Reinoso proposes otherwise. Tools evoke an unspoken, romanticized side to these close-to-impeccable objects. The thin, elongated ends branch out into organic forms as if they are radiating life.


The series consist of 8 pieces including Escalera timida, Rufino's blues, La siesta del rastrillo, Pala ancha, Pala del Amor, Pala rampante, Pala rastrillante and Rastrillo rampante. Whether it is mounted on the wall or placed on the floor against the wall, these pieces possess a different level of beauty, one of which is not at all ephemeral like the ordinary objects we are familiar with.


His other series, Garabatos, on the other hand takes on a much more abstract approach. The extension of his visual language and representation nonetheless resembles the ambiguities of modern poetry. Subtle and endearing, yet screaming autonomy and self-empowerment.


Images does not give it justice, but for the purpose of our current discussion, this should be sufficient. I included the Huge Sudeley Bench outdoor piece as well as some from the E-studios.
