|Atro Cellotto, blown glass|
This duet of strikingly beautiful blown glass pieces by Atro Celotto (about 3 ft high) were made of glass, filigrana, and murrini cane.On the right is a close-up of the piece on the right in the picture at left. Glass is the kind of decorative art that one can pore over at length and repeatedly. Changing perspective by a few inches or the lighting refreshes the view.
On the left, a stone torso (about 1.5 ft high) sculpted from Brucite stone, a beautiful material with crystalline qualities and rich veining. Here, in "Grecian Torso", Jane Jaskevich used it well. This piece has expressive volumes and is a strong decorative work.
|Duncan Mc Clellan, "Man about World"|
This blue and black blown-glass, sand carved work by Duncan McClellan, consists of a man, who towersover the city around (mostly behind and beside) him, as if parting the waters. His head is the globe. Is this a globalist? The entire background are small, generic, human figures in relief, reminiscent of Keith Haring's people. I love glass for its inherent beauty, but it is wonderful to see glass works with relevant narratives and content.
|Work by Massimiliano Schiavone|
Massimiliano Schiavone's decorative abstract pieces are stunning. Here are two close-ups of one work that absolutely dazzles with color and form. This is blown glass, filigrana cane, diamond-carved.
On the right is the 2nd close-up.
Congratulations to all the artists, Duncan Mc Clellan and the DMG crew, specially Jorge Vidal and Tracy Kennard, for a wonderful evening.
