The brain exerts centralized control over the rest of the body, which allows rapid and coordinated responses to changes in the environment. Our brains are “Living, Breathing Landscapes” – always working, adapting and reacting.
Artist Adam Colangelo uses copper as a medium to express the beauty in life. The connection between copper and the brain is clear. The brain has among the highest levels of copper in the body, and the brain requires this metal in balance for normal health function.
Adam Colangelo’s large-scale compositions speak to his understanding of copper and his interest in challenging the way we view and interpret two-dimensional art.
His process is methodical, laborious and time consuming. By employing diverse techniques, Colangelo exhibits an array of patinas and finishes so rich in detail that each small segment of his compositions offers its own earthy abstraction.
