Moon Model Sculpture Tiziano Summo
Tiziano Summo is a Italian British contemporary artist based in London.
Tiziano creates surprising installations that examine the complex relationships between art and science, imperfection and geometry, life and death. With Mortality as a central theme in Tiziano’s work, he challenges contemporary belief systems and explores the uncertainties that lie at the heart of human experience.
His most recent series of work titled Light after death (2019-2020) pairs natural animal skulls with man-made geometric neon to create new profound meaning. Both beautiful and electrifying these functional light pieces evoke a romantic reminder of the inevitability of death - memento mori.
With a background in advertising and graphic design, Tiziano rejects the restraints of commercially driven creativity and approaches his personal craft with an infectious positivity, asking us all to embrace the uncomfortable. Because only by feeling uncomfortable can we evolve.
The Light After Death series combines organic animal skulls with man-made sleek neon, confronting the fragility of life and the eternal perfection of geometry. The work is a modern revisitation of a traditional hunting trophy in a new urban context, giving the work new life and meaning. Both beautiful and electrifying, these functional light pieces evoke a romantic reminder of the beauty of life and the inevitability of death - memento mori. An adult male deer skull paired with curved neon horns. The arching geometric shape is rotated to create a crescent moon, alluding to the beginning of a new life cycle. Witty, distinctive and unforgettable, ‘Light After Death’ is the ideal wall light for art and design lovers looking to bring an eye-catching addition to their interior space.
