11.8" x 11.8" x 1.9" (30 cm x 30 cm x 5 cm) transparent and pigmented methacrylate
"My work reflects on the society and the world where I live in, a world of masks. I put out a mask using a material that has color pigment, yet it is transparent. The spectator, standing in front of the work, can look through it or see his/her personal reflections. Essentially, my work is minimalistic, however, it also depends on a viewer and its surroundings. These pieces are susceptible to transmutation and conversion through changes in the light sources"
Artist is influenced by: Ivan de Menis, Stan Van Steendam, Michelle Benoit, Regina Schumann, Pino Pinelli and Daniel Buren
Artist Leonardo Gambini ('94) lives in Milan and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera. Since 2014, his artistic research has focused on the minimalism and the study of the forms created by the overlap of Methacrylate plates assembled inside a theca. Starting as a street artist with a realistic style, Leonardo has slowly left the figurative road and moved to the conceptual one.
