Renata Francescon, Sub Rosa, 2004
The art of repetition has a peculiar fascination for Renata Francescon. She never uses tools. With her bare hands, she thumbs out thin, individually shaped porcelain rose petals. The process is repetitive; one petal after another is made. Combined into roses and stacked on each other, they form a spatiality where the contrast between the thin, fragile petals and the actual weight of the porcelain sculpture creates a tension. Her method is significant. Francescon's fingers leave their imprint on the clay, a physical trace of her presence.
