SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- After Delphine Lucielle's - successful solo exhibition in April 2013 at the Saatchi Gallery in London, her artwork Template for Life is now on display during the 55th Venice Art Biennale as part of Glasstress 2013. Lucielle presents works in glass alongside an international roster of artists including Cai Guo-Qiang, Thomas Schutte, Tracey Emin, Joseph Kosuth, Miroslaw Balka, Cornelia Parker, Tony Oursler and Joana Vasconcelos.
This year's exhibition is curated by Adriano Berengo and James Putnam and challenges artists to create works based on the properties of light and heat, fundamental in the creation and manipulation of the medium of glass.
Taking inspiration from geological patterns found in stones, Lucielle's multi-panel glass painting Template for Life has received rave reviews. "Delphine Lucielle's paintings are profound, unique, and moving. It is rare to find contemporary art that combines both beauty, innovation, and creates a new style of painting by fusing technology and nature. Delphine Lucielle is pushing the boundaries of what art is capable of," said Jerry Yang, entrepreneur, co-founder of Yahoo and art collector. Adriano Berengo, founder of Glasstress, added that "Lucielle's artwork is visually very distinctive as she paints with glass and stones and hand-weaves glass fibers to create her work. She pioneered the creation of glass sculptural paintings that float on the wall."
From June 1 to November 24, 2013, Delphine Lucielle's artwork can be seen during the Venice Art Biennale in the following three locations:
