Fernando Mastrangelo’s use of natural materials as cultural metaphors continues in his latest series, THE CAPITAL COLLECTION. Individually titled Aurora, Marina, and Sahara, the diverse trio of mirrors are unified in their use of hand-dyed sand as their primary design material. Referencing Dubai as an architectural oasis that has emerged from a sand-covered landscape, the collection weaves a geographic narrative within its commanding visual appeal.
"An intrinsic part of my artistic process is interpreting the landscape, history, and essence of a unique region through my sculptural language. I’m incredibly humbled to have that opportunity with Dubai and The Capital Collection. If the pieces capture or translate even a fraction of Dubai’s intensity and beauty, I’d consider that a success."
