Florence, Italy based artist Fabrizio Corneli sculpts shadows and light to create silhouettes, faces, or even true paintings of light. His fascinating work involves lamps, metal plates, prisms, but also a lot of mathematics to think carefully the outcome of each sculpture.

Whether Corneli’s piece is a folded sheet of copper casting the negative space of an intricate scene, or suspended triangular lantern expelling a burst of light in the silhouette of a man with outstretched arms, they each utilize the power of light and shadow to form unforeseeable figures.
