Swirl at DiAnoia's

First presented in an exhibition at Artisan Cafe in Pittsburgh, Volpe’s “Swirl” explores the visualization of movement, emotion and the cyclical nature of life within the abstract. Much like the meandering, yet interconnected lines of the sculpture, fate would bring the artist back to encounter the piece at DiAnoia’s Eatery in the Strip, several years after its purchase at Artisan.

Following a minimalist and conscientious approach, materials for this piece were sourced from left-over aluminum from another project.
