Opera Gallery exhibits Mauro Corda

From November 14th until December 16th, The Opera Gallery presents the UK premier of the new works of Mauro Corda, in an exhibition curated by Jean-David Malat.

A contemporary mind with the spirit of the ancients, Corda has combined these qualities to form his fascinating unveiling of human beings and animals alike.

As a sculptor, Corda incorporates colours such as chrome silver, gilding and paint into his bronze art forms. In search of greater dimensions, his sculptures have moved on to other materials, such as aluminium and iron. Influenced by his time in the Italian Pietrasanta, he has also introduced marble and terra cotta into his work. His incredible command over the materials develops them into profound pieces of art. Some may say his sculptures are so unsettling; it is hard to look away.
His shifting of materials lead back to his vision to portray persons in the most diverse roles, environments, and situations.

134 New Bond Street, Monday to Saturday 10am -7pm. Sunday 12-5pm. Free admitance.
