In his work, Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone (b. 1964) addresses the human condition and the natural world. The selection of artworks curated by the artist include materially diverse sculptures, installations, and paintings that seduce viewers into his fold and provoke them to reflect on mortality and the inevitable passage of time. The artist’s works are at once deeply optimistic and idealistic, romantically wistful and mournful, exuberant and morose. He achieves this range of tones by utilizing bright colors and familiar objects to mask an underlying thread of melancholy. Rondinone often transforms the color and scale of familiar natural elements, such as mountains, waterfalls, clouds, and the sun to create intimate settings for contemplation and meditation.
