Explore Manuel Facchini

Manuel Facchini explores transformation, drawing inspiration from both sculpture and the natural world to create a collection that shifts between structure and fluidity, presenting continuous transformation. Beginning with his usual focal point, sculpture, Manuel Facchini's initial influence was taken from the winding ribs of the Centennial Chromograph.
The work creates an illusion of mutability; the skeletal frame portrays an architectural structure, whilst the undulating curve of each rigid segment maintains a softness and feminine aesthetic. This notion of femininity is evident in Facchini's second stimulus, the Betta Splendens, the fighting fish with voluptuous fringed fins. Romantic and flowing, these bold fins transform into taut spikes when the fish is threatened.
