Cascione & Lusciov
Heavily influenced by the concepts emerging from movements such as Light & Space, Geometric Abstraction, Minimalism and Neo-Futurism, Cascione & Lusciov appropriate techniques from sculpture, design, and goldsmithing within their practice. The two artists believe in the evolution and rapid technological advancement with the help of arts, science and technology. In that sense, their art is a vision of the future. Their work is stripped of all unnecessary elements and is given a pure shape.
In their artistic research, the duo focus on the basic concept of an object in motion, bringing it into the present through a futuristic element to the series: dimensional travel, space, time, and the form of light as it traverses the universe.
Silvia Cascione (Italy) and Roman Lusciov (Lithuania) work mainly on conceptual sculpture and installation utilizing materials such as bronze, steel, acrylic and lights. Each work is made entirely by hand and uniquely characterized by clean aerodynamic lines, emphasized through the fluid, liquid state appearance and highly reflective, metallic surfaces paired with organic and biomorphic forms result in sculptures loaded with emotion and dynamism.
Cascione & Lusciov’s work resides in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum (Smithsonian Institution), Washington, D.C., United States; Nevada Museum of Art, Reno, NV, United States; SUArt Museum, Syracuse, NY, United States; Istituto Centrale per la Grafica (ICG), Rome, Italy; and in other collections of the Harvard Art Museums/Fogg Museum, Cambridge, MA, United States.
