Tristano di Robilant
Tristano di Robilant (1964 - London, England)
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.
Tristano di Robilant lives and works in Rome and London. Working in both sculpture and drawing, di Robilant uses a variety of media from bronze and aluminum to glass. His work is in both private and public collections in Europe and the United States, including the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo and the Museo del Vetro in Murano. A comprehensive overview of the works of Tristano di Robilant was published by the magazine DOMUS in September 2010.
