Milton Becerra

Born 1951 in Colón, Venezuela
Lives in Paris, France


Since 1980, Milton Becerra has created immersive installations which investigate ethereal movement, suspending objects in radiating webs of thread as if weightless. Intersecting lines and a playful interplay of elements generates a strong sense of geometry. Materials such as fragments of pre-Hispanic figurines, semiprecious stones and crystals provide endless creative possibilities for his distinctive visual language in which ‘the form exists because there is spirit’. Becerra’s works open multi-dimensional geometric passages, speaking to us about the architecture of the world.
