This sculpture consists of four Murano blown-glass spheres decorated with a filigree overlay and sprinkled with powdered glass. The trompe l’oeil effect, inspired by Kandinsky’s method of concealing subtle truths within his works, is a metaphor for life: we look into the object, we believe we can put our hand inside it, we see two objects when in reality there is only one. Glass enables Pascale to achieve this effect, as its mass is so transparent it conveys the impression of emptiness.
