Dalya Luttwak and Daniele Basso




Galleria Ca’ d’Oro New York is proud to present two new exhibitions

Dalya Luttwak  &  Daniele Basso

April 23 – May 23 2015

Opening Reception April 23, 6 – 8 pm

Dalya Luttwak’s sculpture explores the subterranean support systems that anchor and nourish the plants that we cultivate, harvest, and admire. Since 2007, Luttwak has expertly forged, hammered, welded, and painted steel — transforming the rigid metal into intriguing artworks that evoke the sinuous forms of roots. Working from actual physical roots, which the artist often draws in all their complexity, Luttwak seeks to uncover the hidden beauty of roots, exploring the relationship between what grows above the ground and, more mysteriously, what grows below. Her sculptures, in essence, reveal what nature prefers to conceal. Luttwak’s work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally, most notably during the 54th Annual Venice Biennale, the American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center, and The Kreeger Museum in Washington, DC.
