Escape Drums, Black Silica and Powdered Glass by Fernando Mastrangelo

Quantity

About

The Escape drums are furniture as escapism. Each piece is like a three-dimensional landscape painting - the simple, geometric forms are seamless gradients of tones and textures. The materials impart an ethereal quality. Silica, with its lava-like texture, composes the foreground. Hand-dyed sand is stratified with delicate veins, subtly changing in tone to suggest layers of earth, and distant mountain ranges. Crystalline, almost translucent powdered glass constitutes otherworldly skies and bodies of water.

About The Maker

Fernando Mastrangelo Studio

Fernando Mastrangelo Studio

View Profile
Fernando Mastrangelo uses atypically commonplace materials – such as salt, coffee, sand, glass and cement – to cast sculptural objects that inextricably entangle fine art and design disciplines. Amalgamating commodity materials and pure geometric form, the works are intriguingly contradictory; they are both rugged and refined, durable and delicate, formal and functional. Precisely because of their hybrid natures, each work shatters the potential for contextual singularity. Instead, these free-standing and wall-hanging sculptural pieces resonate across a panoramic, multidisciplinary spectrum – spanning formal, social, historical, mathematical, and even religious subject matters. Mastrangelo enlists an unrelentingly fastidious fabrication process to achieve these liminal harmonies, through which he is able to expand our experience of everyday materials, granting them an otherwise unnoticed cutting-edge, sophisticated minimalism.
