Layla D'Angelo's new art works offer an invitation to the infinite. Hints of Russian constructivism, op art and kinetic sculpture are combined in black and white wall mounted iron constructions, held together with magnets, that can be subjected to unlimited reconstruction by the viewer. Fragmentary flat iron pieces suggest diamonds, lozenges, fishscales or jigsaw puzzle pieces, the composite form of which is never final, never reaching conclusion. (...)

Rosalind Krauss observed that in constructivist theory art was seen as "an investigatory tool in the service of knowledge." What knowledge is she seeking to convey? Is there even any objective truth to convey? The title of one piece, "Chequered Life," and it's mutable form suggest that there is no objective truth but instead there is only subjective experience: life is open ended and art is what you make of it, literally. In this sense D'Angelo's constructions are (...) subjects not objects: they are constantly subject to the absolute control of the viewer.

La nueva obra artística de Layla D'Angelo plantea una invitación al infinito. Las esculturas montadas sobre la pared son móviles. Trozos de hierros planos, dan la sugerencia de diamantes, rombos, escamas de pez, o las piezas de un rompecabezas. Se sujetan entre sí con imanes dando al espectador ilimitadas posibilidades de colocación. La forma de la composición realizada nunca es la final, siempre mutable, inacabable. (...)

Rosalind Krauss observó que la teoría del arte constructivista fue vista como "una herramienta de investigación al servicio del conocimiento." ¿Qué conocimiento D'Angelo trata de transmitir? ¿Hay siquiera una verdad objetiva a transmitir? El título de una pieza, "Chequered Life" (Vida rocambolesca), con su forma mutable sugiere que no existe una verdad objetiva, sino que sólo hay una experiencia subjetiva: literalmente la vida es abierta y el arte es lo que hacemos de ella. En este sentido las piezas que D'Angelo presenta (...) son sujetos, no objetos: están continuamente sometidos al albedrío del espectador.
