Daniel Brusatin’s work has been influenced by his childhood in Columbia and subsequent studies and sojourns in Paris, Milan, Florence and the Himalayas. A multidisciplinary artist, Daniel experiments with shape, materials, colours and texture to explore the poetical dimensions in the way we perceived beauty, art and life itself.
“My illuminated, stained glass chess table is inspired by the balance between opposites. Creation and destruction. The lines as the hands of Michelangelo’s ‘La Création D’Adam’ from opposite sides nearly touch each other and maintain a tension, thus creating balance in the board and giving the illusion of forward movement. The pink splatters symbolise beauty of thought amid the battlefield and the colour frame paradise out of it. Both sides are black (gloss black + matt black) giving the illusion of equality between battling sides but symbolically the light of war makes them different.”
