Sandblasted Freeform Exoskeleton Conducta

Product Number: 002-298-0217

Rolando eschews placing titles on works, preferring to identify different pieces with numbers. One of the reasons that he does this is that Rolando doesn't want to prejudice your interpretation of the composition. In a way, our placing a title on a Rolando is kind of akin to walking up to a pal who is watching Citizen Kane for the first time, and saying "Rosebud was his sled". Except that what we are offering up isn't a fact, simply our interpretation of what the shape represents.

Making only its second appearance on our site since 2008, this Exoskeleton (and it IS an Exoskeleton, dammit) has metamorphosed into a Conducta, a reverse Calabash, and the center of this form, both literally and figuratively, is the implied articulation of a joint. In keeping with the (presumed) inspiration, while one segment is larger than its partner, the difference in size more subtle than seen in most Negoita signatures. In turn, a fine (dare I say it?), almost classical compositional balance presents. For additional visual emphasis, Rolando always finishes the point of articulation of an Exo in a different manner than that which comes before and after. In this case a smooth band of ruby acts as a bridge between two beautiful, startlingly well grained sandblast canvases. Just in case you forgot (and I almost did), it's worth mention again that this Rolando Exoskeleton is a reverse Calabash, making the interior almost as amazing as the exterior.
