The Mountain-Inspired RIDGE Series by Fernando Mastrangelo
View Slideshow

One of our favorite pieces, and booths for that matter, at Sight Unseen OFFSITE this year was by Fernando Mastrangelo, who presented the RIDGE Series as the final release of his launches this spring. The landscape-inspired series conjures feelings of what it must be like to be high up on a mountain amongst the stillness of the landscape where nature is delicate and ever-evolving. Captured in an elevation of gradients from black to greys to white, the stone-like pieces have raw edges that extend from the ground upwards to the tops of the mountains where there’s freshly fallen snow and clouds.

The RIDGE Series features Mastrangelo’s signature cast sand pieces, here in drums and wall-mounted pieces, along with a 1,452-piece cut glass mosaic wall mirror that mimics the very same abstract mountains as the sand pieces.
