Portraits of Reflection is a collection of icons, three-dimensional sculptural canvases formed with painted cardboard, presented by Artist Tomaso Albertini.
His first professional work of large format paintings concentrated on a serious investigation of color. After this initial period, there was a big change in his creative path, and Albertini began to experiment with new materials. He wanted the work to be more physical - more direct.
Working with a disposable material like cardboard has allowed him to accomplish the figure as if it were a object, then adding paint to it as if it were a canvas. This technique introduced dynamics approaching sculpture, which in fact, is a hybrid of the manifestation of the artist’s innermost visions.
Albertini has worked with Fat Free Art and Sotheby’s, among other relevant galleries and auction houses and has been featured on manifold publications including D/railed Mag and The Guardian.
