ROY G. BIV’S WALL
The glass work is a conceptual one, hence its title: ROY G. BIV’S WALL, using the first letter of each colour of the rainbow, (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet). Each glass brick has a different colour entrapped within, the glass spheres seem distorted and merging through the bricks. The work conveys glass’s inner quality: transparency and solidity, and the overall effect mimics colours reflected on water, the whole references to Venice… The number seven is not accidental as, besides the number of colours in the rainbow, it is also a key reference in religion and mathematics.
The exhibition is scheduled at the Misericordia in Venice, 2013.
