Please note, this artwork is part of Gaetano Pesce's solo exhibition at the Aspen Art Museum. Your purchase will be available for shipping following the exhibition closure on October 16.
The exhibition features three Leaf Cabinets in red, blue, and yellow, especially realized for Aspen Art Museum. Originating from a hand-made scale model by the artist, these cabinets develop out of Pesce’s interest in pushing the material to unknown boundaries (a “self-imposed” challenge, in his words). The resin employed for this production reaches a very high temperature during its catalyzation, nearing self-combustion. After pouring the resin into the mold, it is left to cool down with the aid of fans for over twelve hours. These shelf units become spectacular monoliths, rewards of an extreme and fearless production process.
