With a texture is wood-grain inspired this set is part of my series Woodcuts.
The modeling is created by hand with a cellulose paste on wooden supports.
Once dry, the model is impregnated with epoxy resin to make it harder and resistant.
The entire front surface of the squares is covered with 1000/1000 real silver leaf, chemically oxidized to obtain warm tones and shades ranging from light golden to reddish brown and blue-green in the darker spots.
The oxidation is always different and makes each work a unique and original piece.
The side edges are gilded with imitation gold leaf once again oxidized.
Finally a layer of satin varnish protects the bas-reliefs from future oxidations, dust and UV rays.
The set can be arranged at your leisure, together or separated according to your decorative requirements.
I create commissioned installations with a different size/number of pieces please contact The Artling for more info.
Shipping & Returns
Based in: Rome
After attending the High School of Art I moved onto European Institute of Design in Rome and graduated in illustration.
I find inspiration for my artworks through a close, attentive look of nature.
I focus on a particular organic texture, wood, bark, vegetable, animal or the shape of a rock and I bring it in the circumscripted space of an artwork.
Sometimes city landscape as well offers me a suggestion, such as the uneven cobblestones of the city I live in or the fascination of a peeling crackle wall.
I like playing with patina on metal finishes, since the oxydation is always unpredictable and unique and gives distinctiveness to each piece.
Through my website I collaborate with collectionists, art consultants and interior designers, creating bespoke pieces of art custom designed for each project.
