NUCLEUS

NUCLEUS – a multi-element mirror, a sculpture, an art installation… Made of colourized stainless steel using FiDU technology, it is one of the statement objects in Oskar Zięta’s oeuvre.

 

 

Although its name refers to the realm of the organic world – the cell’s structure of living organisms, its form was inspired rather by the cultural heritage. Resembling a nimbus or an aureole, it consists of eleven triangular elements composed into an ideal circle.

The juxtaposition of dynamic, even aggressive geometric forms with the soft and regular shape of the circle creates a dramatic effect. Additionally, the elements of the structure change their colour gradually: from emerald green to sapphire blue shades.

 

The striking visual outcome of NUCLEUS is the result of Zięta’s experiments with applying layers of colour coating on the surface of the polished steel. The artist managed to maintain the reflecting nature of metal and mix it with deep and strong colours.

“Researching colouring techniques and selecting proper materials was a long process,” Oskar explains. “The coat is applied with a special painting technique so as to obtain a luscious colour gradient.”

 

NUCLEUS can be defined as a sculpture-like mirror or a mirror-like sculpture. It creates unusual reflections thus defining the space through distortions and gradient deformations.
