Blue Genetic

Michelangelo Penso
Solo show

Michelangelo Penso comes to Alberta Pane Gallery for the third time with his personal exhibition Blue Genetic, a retrospective of his pieces from 2008 to 2010.
Inspired by distant cosmic dimensions (White Island, 2007), the artist's work reaches the depth of organic masses and genetic circuits presented in this exhibition in the form of sculptures, installations, and drawings.
Penso, a true poet of artistic materials, recently became interested in a new raw material offering many creative possibilities: polyester straps.
In the series Orbits, different-colored straps are rolled and assembled in various cosmic formations, presented on the wall or on the floor.
