"Metamorphosis n. 1" is an abstract contemporary painting created with the pure pigment technique on paper by the artist Sofia Rocchetti. This original artwork measures 50 x 70 cm and it is mounted on a honeycomb panel. This stunning work of art features a surface bronze-coloured and shaded, on wich upper and lower edges seem to be moving metallic scales brick-red in colour. The geometry, the volumes and the three-dimensionality of this contemporary masterpiece are elements of a surreal and intimate anthropomorphism.
"Metamorphosis n. 1" is part of the "Metamorphosis" paintings series, created in 2004 and, as the name suggests, proceeds along the evolutionary path of Sofia Rocchetti’s artistic journey: the fullness of dark and bronze shades, cut through by intrinsic luminosity, which give movement and continuous mutability to the distended details of the pointed metallic shapes. Although the changeable dynamism of a conceptual future is a characteristic element of Sofia Rocchetti's works, in Metamorphosis it is clearly the central feature.
