ARTWORK IN CONTEST

AMMONITES, 2016

SCULTURA - plexiglass, alluminio
cm 130 x 80 x 25

Paola Lambitela (Ammonites), using common industrial materials, plays with fine decorative taste to create an imaginary fiorai pattern. Very singular, the work requires a change of took, from the constructive particular to the overview. The eye is in fact caught, in the first instance, by the overall pattern and only then pauses to consider the originai composition of the work. Moreover, it is left entirely to the beauty and the properties of the material.
