TESTE COMPOSTE (GENTLEMAN), 2019
£3500 + VAT
The gentleman is part of a series of arcimboldo-esque mirrors composed of swirls rosettes, flowers and leaves, some of the most typical elements of craftwork on Venetian mirrors, in the place of beards, eyes, noses, and hair. The mask and the mirror are both typical Venetian artistic products: combining the two creates a new mirror which maintains the decorative details of the antique venetian mirrors while downplaying any seriousness with irony and levity.
