a Multifaceted Couple
Year-end 2022 was total immersion — finishing a pair of sculptures after several years of awaiting transport to Europe. When asked what led to the inspiration for this up-beat duo, Patrizia recalled "I wanted to create multicultural personalities that reflect the world we live in today. Part of the New World Collection, HE and SHE are a melding of 21st century pop-art, reggae, hip-hop and world music genres. Of emerging fashion among celebs and the brilliant vibe found on the global stage.”
Patrizia's choice for this multifaceted vision? Mosaics. The dual personality statues feature a fun and vivacious side with a classically, formal flip side.
HE stands 225 centimeters tall, SHE slightly less. The pair are encased in a mixture of glass mosaic tessere to include 24 karat gold and sterling silver, millefiori, beads and found objects. The bases are wood.
