About

José Soto creates works of art that explore the physical experience of looking through photography and invite the viewer to reexamine his/her own perception of form, light, and space in the natural landscape. FOCUS FOCUS is a public art sculpture about the viewer’s growing visual perception and bodily experience. It consists of two large rectangular-shaped pieces, one placed in a vertical position and the other in a horizontal position. Each piece has two squared and rectangular-shaped holes, which serve as apertures from where viewers can see their surroundings within a limited, yet infinite scope. The sculpture has a golden mirror-like surface that will reflect and project surrounding light. When the viewer looks through the opening, they will see an abstraction of their surroundings. By limiting the scope of their view, they can take more control over their focus of attention and see things in a more mindful way. FOCUS combines the illusionism of photography with the specificity of actual forms in the space to fully engage the spectator and facilitate the apprehension of the work as a whole. Awards he has received are Retrancado, fist_ART.FOUNDATION, Dorado, PR (2014), Permm Stop Public Art Project, Museum of Contemporary Art, Perm, Russia (2012), and Gold Award from B&W Photography (2006). In 2009 he had a solo show in San Juan, presented by Walter Otero Gallery and Viota Gallery. His work has been exhibited in a number of group shows in New York, San Juan, Valencia, and Pingyao. Among these shows are Camera Work, Parsons The New School for Design, New York, NY (2015); Hot or Cold?, BronxArtSpace, Bronx, NY (2015); Art INCUBARTE 7, Museo Valenciano de la Ilustración y la Modernidad, Valencia, Spain (2015); Muestra Nacional de Arte, Instituto de Cultura Puertorriqueña, San Juan, PR (2015); Región 0: Video Art Festival, New York University, New York, NY (2013); Puerto Rico: Doorway to the Landscape, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo, San Juan, PR (2013); Pingyao Photo Festival, Pingyao, China (2011); The Culture of Now, Aperture Magazine, New York, NY (2011); 11 del 2011, Museo de Arte de Ponce, Ponce, PR (2011); and Puerto Rican Photography, Instituto de Cultura Puertorriqueña, San Juan, PR (2011).
