Glaciers and icy mountains have been in the vernacular of Mastrangelo’s work for some time. This rug evokes in texture the slow but inevitable degradation of glacial forms. This design is expertly tufted by skilled artisans.
Fernando Mastrangelo is a Brooklyn-based contemporary artist best known for his sculptures, furniture and large-scale wall works by using typically commonplace materials such as salt, coffee, sand, glass and cement. Mastrangelo has always been inspired by his surroundings – the people, the places and the politics. His works are intriguingly contradictory; both rugged and refined, durable and delicate, formal and functional. Mastrangelo took a conceptual approach to rug making in the Reverence edition for Edward Fields, bringing the same spirit of consideration in each grain of materials in Mastrangelo’s sculptural works.
