The exhibition at Diana Lowenstein Gallery, Miami, features works by artists Loris Cecchini and Dirk Salz. Cecchini’s research is driven by the topics of motion and biological metaphor: his pieces merge photography, drawing, sculpture and installation, as well as elements from different fields of knowledge, such as chemistry or groundbreaking technologies. In the process of production, the artist acts as a scientist, moving from the investigation of single and minimal modules, to the creation of calculate combinations of elements, which recall natural forms like climbing plants, corals or crystals structures.
Dirk Salz’ paintings stand out for the special technique behind their creation. The artist applies several thick layers of epoxy resin enriched with paint pigments upon multiplex boards, occasionally also aluminum, and generally primed in black. The result to the gaze is a dual effect of real spatial depth, given by the transparency of resin, and the multiple light games, originating from the hard and reflecting surface of the material.
