Ave Pildas, in his intense artwork, Circles, Squares and Triangles, embarks on a profound investigation into the reality of things, and he does so by questioning the very existence of objects via the ambiguity of their relation with us—human beings and spectators. Pildas, in a Platonic effort, chooses simple geometric objects—cubes, spheres, grids and strings—that are present in an abstract, perfect and unchanging form, thereby almost transcending time and space. His objects are simply there: sensual as concepts; losing their functional utility they occur only as an aesthetic phenomenon. He has created an ideal world. But what we see is, in fact, a mirage. Pildas’ world is full of deceiving mirrors and poetic lenses: things are there, but they are not truly there. –Niccolo Casas
