Glass Drawing 2022.Venice is a work of art which develops some to the themes presented in Wall Drawing 2022.Lisbon since both works were designed to be created side by side.
The minimalist language created for Glass Drawing 2022.Venice maintains the simple set of three colors (magenta, turquoise and orange) and limits the geometric forms to a simple triangle. In addition, the negative spaces between the triangles are used to create 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional structures.
The topology and symmetry used in Wall Drawing 2022.Lisbon is maintained for the representation of symbols isomorphic to the iconic Basque symbol ´Lauburu´.
Using a symmetry of order 4, the images of the windows represent a range of mountains along with their reflection on the surface of the sea.
For the glass entrance of the building, a Cube was created to represent the multi-dimensionality of project. For that purpose, symmetries of order 4 and order 3 were combined, but maintaining the constant triangle as the base of the design.
This work is complemented in the same physical place with the work Wall Drawing 2022.Lisbon
The work presents the same motif adapted to the size of each window.
The window that is inserted in the work Wall Drawing 2022.Lisbon only uses orange and magenta vinyl.
