The most important resource in David Magán’s work is colored light, filtered by thin layers of glass and methacrylate. Thus deconstructs the sculptural and transcends the purity of the materials used, aware that color is an organic situation. For Havana he has conceived a polyhedron of light. His understanding of island culture acquires scale in a kind of vitrified cathedral conceived as visual architecture. The iconic stained glass motif, a pecualiar of colonial architecture and modern painting, reaches new readings under the influence of the tropical sun. The colored light keeps, after the nonsense of its outdoor location, a metaphysical meaning.
