The Sea of Ice

Laser engraved glass, aluminum, 100 x 70 x 1.5 cm

By transposing a linear drawing of an on oil on canvas painting The Sea of Ice also called The Wreck of Hope by the German painter Caspar David Friedrich and engraving it in glass, I am creating an illusion of an image that floats and seems to avoid precise analysis. This work is an homage to Romanticism, a movement that glorified the attitude towards the past in a specific way, through the ideal of “poetic truth”, which metaphorically connects all of the works included in the exhibition Ruins of Future Utopia.
