“Victor Goikoetxea’s proposal is essentially a continuous challenge that transcends the known techniques and the scale of the work or performance itself. His formal exploration draws from the sources of biomimicry of nature, through folds, twists and undulations
that recreate illusory and dreamlike environments. The transformation of matter becomes an obsession, until it is mastered in impossible ways and it becomes something more spatial in large-format works, hybridizing art and technology to achieve innovative textures and finishes.
The material works of Victor Goikoetxea are born from the detailed understanding of the genius loci. His regular collaborations with architects and interior designers value his work as an indissoluble part of a transforming action designed for a place with the aim of creating disconcerting and never-seen emotions in the observer. The Miramart Tunnel
in the Bahía de la Concha, for example, he recreates the artistic experience of an underwater world, and along the same lines, other of his abstract interventions in murals and ceilings aim to blur the limits of inhabited space and ask us questions about the true essence of the place and us as observers.
The entire vital and artistic journey of Victor Goikoetxea is a continuous exploration of the established limits. The artist walks a path where the essences collected in each
season they evolve their work introducing innovation, risk and sophistication to their proposals.”
