Scapes PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Scapes free pdf This book celebrates Scapes, a gloriously colorful, dynamic new body of work in glass imagined and executed by siblings Laura de Santillana and Alessandro Diaz de Santillana. In addition to having a family history anchored in the traditions of glassmaking in Murano, Italy, both are respected artists in the international Studio Glass movement and have enjoyed successful solo careers. This book celebrates their first collaboration. The art in Scapes is inspired by Hindu cosmology. Alessandro's glass paintings were created from large, color-saturated cylinders that were slumped open into vibrant painterly compositions. Laura's elegantly sculpted forms represent linga, mountains, celestial eggs, and stars. The book includes essays by renowned experts and a DVD documenting the creation of the complex artwork, including interviews with the artists describing the four installations that comprise Scapes.
