On the 13th June 2019, the 19th floor of the historic Milanese building the “Torre Velasca”, will host some of the Milanese artist Cesare Catania’s artworks for an evening “on leave” in the rooms of the Monza Royal Palace Museum.
The occasion, generated by a collaboration with the Unipol Group – Domux Home, owner of the iconic Milanese Tower, has been created to present to the international press one of the last two works by the Milanese artist entitled THE CUTTING (D Version), the fourth of a series of works that starts from a simple cut on canvas and that abstractly explores its contents and artistic implications.
For the first time in the world, real diamond crystals are used in art field to create unique pieces of art.
The real diamonds have been supplied by Jean Boulle Luxury (Sun King Diamond), a well-known group that for generations has been dealing with the extraction of precious stones and that believes in Cesare Catania’s “astonishing” idea supporting him in the realization of his latest diptych.
“… to make the diamond reflect well is already in itself a work of art. The fact of using it in combination with the colours to enhance the chromatic variations with its shine and with its diffraction seemed to me an absolutely natural choice … “so the artist explains.
The system chosen to achieve this incredible effect is a variation of the one developed by the well-known Luxembourg group Jean Boulle, which currently offers to its multi-million dollar customers similar coatings on Rolls Royces, yachts and private jets.
An absolutely effervescent moment for the painter and sculptor Cesare Catania, who has just inaugurated his exhibition at the Barclays Bank headquarters in Monaco and which for the second edition of his retrospective will exhibit in the Monza Royal Palace Museum not only the artworks, but also the techniques and inspirations.
