Alberto Garutti, ‘Cristallo rosso’, 1995-2014, Buchmann Galerie Lugano

The work is composed of an iron structure and a transparent red crystal, made by hand for the occasion. The color evokes the chromatic dominant the artist had seen for a long time from the window of his home. “I lived in Milan in a small apartment with large windows on a courtyard, in front of a red house. On sunny days my room was invaded by a very luminous pink tone making it a cheerful place. That was the landscape I saw.”
