In a recent series by Luca Dellaverson, the artist pours hot epoxy resin over mirrored glass, allowing the material to fracture and buckle in the cooling process. As the interaction of the glass and resin results in a non-reflective surface, Dellaverson plays with themes of loss and accessibility through this barrier between his viewers and the works. Dellaverson is represented by Tilton Gallery, New York, and has recently exhibited at FIAC, Paris and Sean Kelly Gallery, New York.

About Luca Dellaverson
Luca Dellaverson’s multimedia works examine how the modern world processes recent histories and cultural products. In video installations and glass and resin pieces, Dellaverson considers his generation’s relationship to the 1990s, presenting art-historical and pop culture references through cracked glass lenses and chemically altered film. These materials create layers of distance, which allude to a sense of disenchantment and question the power of nostalgia and memory in an ever-changing society.
American, b. 1987
