‘I owe everything to the sun. Especially my shadow.’
Re-wording Apollinaire`s aphorism ‘J’ai tout donné au soleil. Tout sauf mon ombre’, this is a tribute to the shadows, and their importance for knowledge.
In this piece, the shadow casted by the embroidery reveals the patterns, expanding them in an endless drawing, painting all the space around.
From a side point of view you can see the embroidery against the light, reinforced in this contrast.
Some reflections from the smoky transparent diffuser add a ‘fluid’ effects to the composition.
It’s created by a single source of light, movable along an arc, as the orbit of the sun which generates different shadows depending on its position. – Paolo Portaluri – Homedesign – Furniture – Metal – Reputeka – Paolo Portaluri – Homedesign – Furniture – Cloth – Reputeka – Paolo Portaluri – Art – Lighting – Cloth – Reputeka
