An artist from Milan, Michela Pomaro’s work focuses on the relationship between light and colour. Her life-size fruit stall, hand-crafted in Italy, seems to accurately recall the shapes and colours of the stalls from a happy, bygone era. But suddenly the perception begins to change, tricked by Pomaro’s intelligent use of colours and lights. The tiny sculptures created in synthetic ceramic and varnished resins that could be apricots, cherries, passion fruits or lychees, transcending time and culture, become abstract, polyhedric shapes. The use of fluorescent sprays and neon lights makes these shapes start then to fade and alternate between pure dashes of colour, turning the space into a joyful, psychedelic night market.
