Italian artist Annaluigia Boeretto’s striking sculptures capture the unexpected splendor of splashing water. Undoubtedly inspired by life on the lagoon, the Venice-based artist (who is also referred to as Annalu`) creates pieces that evoke movement and drip with drama.
With a focus on texture and an interest in illusion, Annalu`’s oeuvre comprises beautiful sculptures that experiment with abstraction. In her Liquidity series, some pieces are entirely organic, while others portray recognizable forms, like intricate, exploding flowers and overflowing books that appear to burst at the seams. While the translucent creations convey the light and lustrous quality of glass, they’re actually crafted from a different—and surprising—medium: resin! The material is saturated in a wash of blended pastel tones and stained with bright pops of color, resulting in a dreamy aesthetic that is aptly reminiscent of a watercolor painting.
Simultaneously calm yet chaotic, the sculptural series offers a surreal and stunning look at liquid.
