Incredible Shadow Art by Fabrizio Corneli

The shadow art of Italian artist Fabrizio Corneli is the result of carefully calculated projections of light. Using mathematics to produce each visually compelling and mind-boggling piece of work, Corneli gives life to his seemingly simple, geometric wall extensions with light. He poignantly says, “Light is energy which creates forms."

When the lights are turned off, the Florence-based artist’s work seems like a collection of abstract sculptural figures. They’re nothing to necessarily fawn over and gape at in awe. However, it’s when the light is on that his eye-catching shadows stain the adjacent walls and leave viewers absolutely flabbergasted by the detailed and artistic images that are projected.

Whether Corneli’s piece is a folded sheet of copper casting the negative space of an intricate scene, a suspended triangular lantern expelling a burst of light in the silhouette of a man with outstretched arms, or a few simple stick-like structures on a wall allowing shadows to create the defining contours of animal faces, they each utilize the power of light and shadow to form unforeseeable figures.
