Product Description

360° Rosso Sur Blackout (GZ119) is simple and geometric, prompting the viewer to look closely for the meaning and mechanism concealed in its elegance. A precise, thin red line runs the length of the piece, otherwise rendered in gun-metal, dimly luminescent black and grey. Strapped to the wrist, the cardinal dividing line meets up with itself and forms a circle (360 degrees), a continuous ellipse of red. Placed flat on a surface, the red of the design yields a different composition, a play of still lines and the two red dots that mark the time. Intelligent and curiously pure, this watch has the beauty of a mathematical formula.

Artist Biography

Felice Varini

Felice Varini is a Swiss abstract painter known for his geometric paintings of rooms and other spaces. Using a projector and stencil techniques, Varini works with principles of traditional perspective and mathematics to paint on urban architectural surfaces such as walls, buildings, and streets. Varini is interested in the relationship between fragments and wholes, and in a typical Varini work the viewer is able to see the complete painting, usually a geometric shape, from one vantage point, while other points of view yield a composition of seemingly fragmented shapes.
