Since his first experimentation with copper in his grandfather’s workshop, Adam Colangelo has found promise in this extremely versatile material. His large-scale compositions speak to his understanding of copper and interests in challenging the way we view and interpret two-dimensional art. Colangelo’s process is methodical, laborious, and time-consuming. By employing diverse techniques, he presents an array of patinas and finishes so rich in detail that each small segment of his compositions offers their own earthy abstraction.
Colangelo has exhibited works in Toronto, Whistler, New York, Chicago, Palm Beach, and Tokyo. His work has been acquired for private and corporate collections in Canada and the United States. Colangelo lives and works in Pelham, Ontario.
