FULVIA MENDINI – Caleidoscopio
Antonio Colombo presents for LITTLE CIRCUS, the gallery’s special project space, the solo show by Fulvia Mendini entitled Kaleidoscope.
The artist will show a mandala, a refined painted kaleidoscope, a coloured wood sculpture, two luxuriant small parrots and a series of portraits dedicated to the world of music.
Fulvia Mendini’s work seems like a kaleidoscope. The observer’s view will always meet something different, unusual. The shape’s composition of her work is always opened by new patterns to be, as her formal style is giving birth to an original, variable and ongoing process of shaping, which, like a kaleidoscope, results fascinating for infinities compositions. Mandala, flowers, animals, portraits, decorations are being put together by shaping themselves always in a different way, their visions are astonishing and enchanting.
