These new works of Duccio Maria Gambi made exclusively for NERO design gallery tell us about indelible time.
On the border between individual impression and historical truth , his open language makes discoveries and reveals itself with insight into the new meeting between two elements which are themselves “storytellers” .
There is a permanent whispered tension between aesthetic austerity of concrete and the soft colour of tiles and at the same time between their coldness to the touch and their neverending ability to conjure up warm spaces, like the Paris subway or the Tuscan houses , which have gathered life stories.
The works of Guerra Fredda have different shapes and sizes in which we can find an open yet always coherent dialogue between concrete and tiles.
The synthesis of the two elements becomes a sort of extension of both : the reference to brutalist aestethic blends with human dimension and finds peace in the wonder of a masterly , surprising , unexepected balance.
The name of the works refer to the geographical coordinates of the places from which the tiles come, redefining and emphasizing the dichotomy between the coldness of the material and its evocative potential.
