Lapo Simeoni's 'Red Skin' belongs to the "Things Left Unsaid" series, which focuses on the perception of matter and on the complexity of waste materials in the artwork's visual process. The artist wants to analyse the potentialities of scraps, making them the protagonist of his piece.

The colour remaining on the metal stencil becomes the primary material of the artwork. It is placed in a plexiglas display case, in order to be visualized in its volumetry. This series has been exclusively created using spray, becoming the first form of volumetric and sculptural spray ever made.

This image is just a rendering and does not display the exact dimensions of the artwork.

Lapo Simeoni (1979) is a graduate of Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. He currently lives and works in Berlin.

Through the use of recycled materials, furniture, collages, paintings, photography, books and objects, he reconstructs narratives around the relationship between man and consumerism, thanks to an extensive process of transforming each material and changing its original function. The artist works with images of the past and present, including photographs of monuments, in addition to logos and symbols from old magazines, contemporary advertising and ancient artefacts or forgotten household objects. Simeoni also alters images and objects assembling and deconstructing them, in order to develop a new vision of time and social transformation entirely ascribable to the contemporary.
