Jewelry and objects by Giampaolo Babetto
Etchings and drawings by Dan Van Severen
A cross / THE cross
Not as a religious Christian symbol, but as a universal image that both artists treat as plastic problem.
Much more like a crossroads where an interdisciplinary meeting takes place inside their own work as well as outside of the work.
In their quest for perfection, and with their geometric language, both of them seek for perfection and content.
They manage to use mathematics as the personification of their universe.
Nevertheless, we can state that both artists are more romanticists or symbolists rather than abstract artists.
