Geometry, the site of form and function, may resist its innate rules to offer a sense of liberation, allowing elaboration, ornamentation and re-engagement with the curve, without gesture’s touch.

In his early 20s, Andy Warhol began wearing a wig. At first, it was to disguise his hair loss. However, as the years went on, the unique silver wig contributed to his avant-garde mystery, and the wig, a means of concealment, became a recognisable feature of the public figure of the artist.
Artvisor are pleased to present Andy Warhol Photographs 1970 - 1986, viewable by appointment at our London location.
Arcangelo Sassolino (b.1967), an Italian artist known for combining sculpture and technology that often tests both man-made and natural forces such as gravity, pressure and speed, is representing Malta at this year’s Venice Biennale.
Representing Italy at the 59th Venice Biennale is Gian Maria Tosatti (Rome, 1980) marking the first time ever that only one artist has been chosen to represent the host country.
Of the 213 artists, more than 90 percent were women or gender non-conforming and for the first time in the history of the biennale the two top honours given to artists went to black women.
