Inauguration: Toots Zynsky | endangered species

Event organised by Caterina Tognon Arte Contemporanea, Venezia

Throughout her career, Toots Zynsky (Boston, 1951, lives and works in Providence, RI, USA) has always looked to nature as a primary source of inspiration. Her works, statements of color, transcend any category and inhabit a region of their own, intertwining the traditions of painting, sculpture and decorative arts. For this exhibition, the artist presents a body of works that she explores, through the chromatic element, the complex relationship between man and the environment. Using a pioneering technique of glass processing, so-called a filet-de-verre, Zynsky models sinuous shapes, rich in folds and curves, which overwhelm the rigidity of the material and set the colors in motion, with a kinetic and illusionistic effect present only in nature.
