ARTWORK IN CONTEST

WHAT ARE YOU WATCHING?, 2020

SCULPTURE - Aluminium cut, welded and mirror polished
cm 65 x 44 x 25

With “What are you watching?” Rachele Tinkham proposes a subtle and elegant reflection on the infinite interpretative possibilities that characterize the gaze and the human feeling “What are you watching ? wants to make us reflect on how much our visual perception can vary according to our point of view. The three elements the work is composed of, if looked at separately or detached from each other, make us see forms that normally our eye would not recognize and that would combine with purely organic and abstract forms. As soon as the viewer finds himself in front of the work and finds his definitive point of view, he will be able to perceive a human figure “.
