As is common in his latest works, Untitled offers us Asensio’s particular interpretation of the relationship between geometry and nature. Crafted of white marble with a highly polished finish, the choice of material, which harks back to classical sculpture, helps imbue the work with a sense of immutability and serene beauty, while the dynamism of its curved lines confers a sense of lightness which contrasts with the intrinsic heaviness of the material.
