For his first showing at Spazio Rossana Orlandi in Milan, New York-based artist Fernando Mastrangelo is pleased to present the Drift mirrors series. Drawing on his recent travels, the color palette is inspired by the glaciers of Patagonia, while the stratified sedimentation alludes to the geology of the Grand Canyon. The result is a striking study in the contrast between the organic texture of the hand-dyed sand and steely surface of the glass.

Although “Drift” is his first project under the new moniker FM/s, Mastrangelo has been working with these materials — sand, powdered glass, mirror, and cement — for over a decade now. He founded FM/s earlier this year as a platform for experimental art and design, to complement his design firm MMATERIAL, for which he produces limited-edition and made-to-order sculptural objects. Similarly, each of the new mirrors is one-of-a-kind and produced in a limited edition.
