almost unthought - experimental works in aluminium by Silvano Cattai

Thu 23 June - Thu 4 August

Clare Hall

Silvano Cattai lives and works in Seravezza (Lucca, Italy). Since the early 1990s, Cattai has devoted himself to sculpture, developing his personal research and showing at several European art galleries. In the meantime he has realised monumental and public sculpture around the world.

almost unthought represents a bold approach to painting in which the metallic surface manifests as physical, like sculpture, cutting the space and interacting with light. This will be the first time these works have been exhibited.

'I feel these new works are the culmination of all my experience...' says Cattai, 'all the different aspects of art and lighting and filmmaking brought into one.'

In recent years, Cattai has worked primarily as a sculptor, creating over 40 works commissioned by a private collector in Switzerland, 10 of which were monumental, and 18 aluminium paintings. During this period he travelled frequently to Switzerland and rented a small studio in Geneva, where he evolved his technique using plasma to cut steel, then produced prints on paper, using the steel plasma as a matrix. 'I began to see colour in a whole new way,' he says, 'I understood that I was going to become a painter again...'
