DE CASTELLI

— Color Rhythm

The inspiration of the research on De Castelli's metals was the attempt to preserve the nature of the material keeping it intact and vibrant while exploring its potential.
The fascination for copper oxidation and its colour-generated shades moved Elisa Ossino into a deep inspection of chromatic and pictorial variations of a material that is typically employed for ornamental and sculptural purposes. Looking at the large color backgrounds of Rothko's canvases, Elisa asked De Castelli to check the gradation and modulation of the color palette. The alterations of the parameters involved in the oxidation process are fundamental, such as time, temperature and manual skills. The slabs obtained are identified by a number that is the tracer of this process and composed in an installation that studies the visual and emotional impact of the obtained range. The chromatic scales are then modulated and articulated through geometric figures that interacts with the space with the typical lightness and musicality of a great kinetic sculpture.
