18th century Italian fragment with baroque pearls on a hand-painted gallery 1-inch canvas. The canvas is distressed with gold leaf and metallic red powders used by restorers in Italy and are no longer available. The powders coordinate with the natural-forming baroque pearls. The 18th century fragment is originally from Tuscany.
The Italian artifact and baroque pearls are mounted onto the gold and metallic red powdered canvas and put together to create a 3D sculptural wall piece. The piece appears to have evolved together over time - Interpreting the past to create historical yet contemporary work entirely original, evolving in its own right.
