Swiss-born and Paris-based, Mattia Bonetti creates highly imaginative art design that will soon be featured at the Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York. The exhibition is described as showcasing "the balance of exuberance and rigor that has become the definitive signature of Bonetti's transformative hand. In it, a gracefully draped pearl necklace becomes a table, a broken vase is reborn as a lamp, and a house of cards is reconfigured into a gleaming chest of drawers. Bonetti juxtaposes traditional bronze, gold leaf, wrought iron, and blown glass techniques with resin, acrylic, and mirrored stainless steel technologies to form expertly crafted objects that are a pleasure to use and behold."
New work by Mattia Bonetti can be seen at the Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York from February 11 through March 13, 2010.
