Toots Zynsky. la Natura e la sua immagine | Nature and its image
Caterina Tognon Arte Contemporanea is pleased to announce the solo show by the artist Toots Zynsky, an exhibition that we have been waiting for for many years and which will finally be inaugurated from 16 September 2022 at the Caterina Tognon gallery
Throughout her career, Marie Ann 'Toots' Zynsky (Boston, 1951, lives and works in Providence, RI, USA) has always looked to nature as a primary source of inspiration. Her works, statements of color, transcend any category and inhabit a region of their own, intertwining the traditions of painting, sculpture and decorative arts. For this exhibition, the artist presents a body of works that she explores, through the chromatic element, the complex relationship between man and the environment. Using a pioneering technique of glass processing, so-called a filet-de-verre, Zynsky shapes sinuous shapes, rich in folds and curves, which overwhelm the rigidity of the material and set the colors in motion, with a kinetic and illusionistic effect present only in nature.
