Product Description

Rotor (YGZ101C) is densely tissued with gleaming metal, tucked and arranged in folds, dunes, waves, and pockets of inner and outer space, imbued with the same indomitable spirit expressed in Pomodoro’s massive bronzes. Definitely a Swatch, this piece packs the brass-knuckled punch of the Italian artist’s powerful hand into a small and elegantly appealing work. The name of the watch is engraved on the bezel, and the dial is coloured a gleaming, rain-cloud silver, with bare tapered hands sweeping across the surface. Full of the play of form and space, this work has an inside-out quality that is as fascinating as it is assertive.

Artist Biography

Arnaldo Pomodoro

Arnaldo Pomodoro is an Italian sculptor known for his work in bronze based on basic geometric forms (spheres, pyramids, cones, cylinders) with highly polished surfaces and curiously structured interiors governed by the concept of negative space. Examples of his well known series of large-scale spheres are on prominent display at the Vatican, UN headquarters in New York, the Foreign Ministry in Rome, Trinity College in Dublin, and many other locations. The Arnaldo Pomodoro Foundation established by the artist in Milan presents his work alongside that of other artists.
