Tristano di Robilant - Untitled
ABOUT THE WORK
Tristano Di Robilant's exquisite glass forms represent a continuous investigation into the nature of glass and its paradoxical state: a substance that is both a liquid and a solid. The artist's fascination with the surface of his chosen medium, the translucency of the glass and the dynamic interaction of light and reflection work together to achieve a kind of momentum and weightlessness.
