Handmade Furniture-Sculpture Exhibits

Vincenzo De Cotiis' Nature-Inspired Sculptures are Stunning

— November 6, 2018 — Art & Design
The nature-inspired sculptures by celebrated Italian architect and designer Vincenzo De Cotiis are exhibited in London at the Carpenters Workshop Gallery. The event is given the name 'En Plain Air' which from French translates to 'Outdoors.' The pieces that are a part of the exhibition are absolutely striking by way of their breathtaking visual compositions — from their expressively raw shape to their engaging material makeup.

The idea behind the nature-inspired sculptures is to tap into a specific moment in art history — at the end of the 19th century, when "[artists] decided to leave their studio and paint outdoors to work with natural light." Vincenzo De Cotiis describes his impeccable, avant-garde constructions as "a quintessence" of that event.
