Statement

The work of Txema Novelo is a curious blend of mysticism, rock n' roll, radical politics, and videogames. Through a process of ransacking, perverting, and miscegenating these disparate influences, Novelo has developed a uniquely powerful creole language of sigil-like form and action within the realms of video, installation, performance, and sculpture.
