Toots Zynsky. La Natura e la sua immagine / Nature and its image
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.
