Light, form and colour

In his work, Oskar Zięta explores not only the artistic potential of sheet metal and its formal possibilities but also experiments with colours applied as transparent lacquered layers. The Cave is an iconic example of mixing minimalist shapes with fantastic gradient hues.


The rectangular forms in colours of sapphire and emerald are irregularly cut in their centre thus producing an arresting visual effect of an opening that passes through the layered structure of steel planes. The colours merge and permeate in the tridimensional structure resembling a natural geological formation.
