Author: Túlio Pinto (Brasilia, Brasil, 1974)
Title: Cumplicidade #16
Technique: steel beams and blown glass
Size: 100 x 150 x 135 cm
Edition: PA 1
Just like many of the works of Túlio Pinto, as the heir to constructivism and international minimalism, Cumplicidade #16 is a piece grounded on the relationships between basic shapes and opposing materials which engage in a dialogue characterised by appreciable instability. In this case, three steel beams are combined with three blown-glass globes in a play of tensions and contrasts of opposites (like heavy/light, full/empty, fragile/hard, industrial/handcrafted, stable/unstable), which is their main appeal.
This piece and another sculpture by the same artist were acquired by the Fundación María Cristina Masaveu Peterson at the Senda gallery stand at the 2020 ARCO fair.
