"Metamorphosis n. 3" is a contemporary abstract painting created with the pure pigment technique on paper mounted on a honeycomb panel by the artist Sofia Rocchetti. This striking painting measures 50 x 70 cm and can be conceptually divided into three parts: two great, smooth and uniform scales at the sides and one in the middle featuring the artist's recurring sign. This pictorial work's surface is preponderantly bronze-coloured, except for the deep shading on the edges and for the light that seems to naturally transpire from the paper support. Although this masterpiece is the ideal complement in a modern furnishing context, is equally suitable for a classic style.
"Metamorphosis n. 3" 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.
