NYC-based sculptress & fine jewelry designer Dalila Pasotti just wrapped up her powerful debut solo exhibition 'Infinitas |X| Incognita' curated by Stacie Lucas at East Williamsburg-based gallery, Lucas Lucas. Working in white alabaster, ceramics, & hydrocal mixed media, her mystical sculptures are inspired by the interconnected nature of our universe & the secret link between art & science. Think goddesses, sphinxes, cryptic symbolism & extraterrestrials!
The otherwordly element is key to all Dalila's creations. Having studied Natural Sciences at the University of Turin, she loves combining unseen ideas with scientific theory & research data -- and the end result is nothing short of dazzling. Pairing traditional Old Masters stone-carving technique with an experimental mix of media, each handcrafted piece represents an idealogical vector or scientific theory without a standard metaphorical component. Within a universe of infinite possibilities, she muses on hypothetical life-forms scattered across galaxies.
