Art Unlimited 2017 | Paolo Icaro - Foresta metallica / metallic forest

Paolo Icaro's work Foresta metallica / metallic forest from 1967 was created in his studio on the sixth floor of an industrial building at 53 Greene Street in SoHo.
He likes to work with large, empty spaces and transform them into sculpture, therefore the boarders between life and work and the place of labor and the place of the work are blurred.
Through his work foresta metallica he conquers the space, creating a mixture of sculpture and architecture that both occupies and dematerializes space.
We like the contrast of the bright and light acid-green colour and the heavy steel, as we think it gives the work a certain lightness and heaviness at the same time.
