THE ARTWORK

Red Skin belongs to the "Things Left Unsaid" series, which focuses on the matter perception 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 the piece.
The colour remained on the metal stencil becomes then the primary material of the artwork, being then put in plexiglas display cases in order to be visualized in its volumetry. This series has been realized exclusively using spray, becoming the first form of volumetric and sculptural spray ever made.


THE ARTIST

Lapo Simeoni (1979) studied at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London and currently lives and works in Berlin.

Through the use of recycled materials, furnitures, collages, paintings, photography, books and objects, he reconstructs narrations on the relationship between man and consumerism, thanks to an extensive process of transformation of materials, changing their original function. The artist works with images between past and present - photographs of monuments, logos and symbols of consonance, from old magazines, contemporary advertising and ancient artefacts or forgotten household objects. Then, Simeoni alters images and objects found by assembling and deconstructing, to develop a new vision of time and social transformation entirely ascribable to the contemporary.
