Bronze, Aluminium and Resin
Bronze and resin ring. The rough shard of bronze discard represents the ability of what we perceive as formally useless being converted in something beautiful which can stand next to the perfection of a resin pool.
The contrasting textures and surfaces that evoke the subterranean power of the natural world. Pieces have also an amorphous and organic shape.
Roberta Verteramo’s works explore a “natural” approach to shape, as if the modelling of the pieces responds to certain rules of “materic deposition” only nature can understand. Her research is focuses on the contrasts given by the geometric and the organic forms, working alchemically with luxury materials. “I look for beauty that comes from the balance between these two opposing realities. For me it represents the essence that makes up every human being. The spiritual and the material sides”.
