"Through the medium of participatory sculpture, Juan Gomez-Perales explores the complex dynamics of interpersonal relationships. The works are thoughtfully detailed, carefully constructed stageswhich beckon viewers to enter and complete the art by becoming involved with it. As free standing sculptures the works are elegant in presentation. The true aesthetic, however lies in the viewers's experience of becoming a participant rather than a mere spectator"
