Industrial art by Toronto-based artist Adam Colangelo
"Colangelo’s large-scale compositions speak to his understanding of copper and his desire to reveal its beauty. In treating the copper with heat and chemicals, he can unearth an array of patinas and finishes. Colangelo uses his keen aesthetic sense to create geometric puzzles of copper that are so rich in detail, each small segment offers its own earthy abstraction."

“I don’t really know where my inspiration comes from. It comes from everywhere, from the books I used to read when I was a child, from sounds, lights and people. But I am probably mainly inspired by myths, tales, and by artists and writers such as Freud, Perrault, Magritte, and la Comtesse de Ségur.”

My life is bitter with thy love; thine eyes
Blind me, thy tresses burn me, thy sharp sighs
Divide my flesh and spirit with soft sound,
And my blood strengthens, and my veins abound.
I pray thee sigh not, speak not, draw not breath;
Let life burn down, and dream it is not death.
