ROBERT PAN

Robert Pan (born 1969, Bolzano, Italy) produces his works through a lengthy process involving the superimposition of numerous layers of resin. He uses physical and chemical processes of corrosion with acids, the application of copper plating and oxidation of iron, and other methods still to obtain particular hues. Resin, a material Pan has been working with for many years, serves the function of adding nobility to gesture and presence in search of vibrant power. Though remaining formally abstract, they remind us of macro- and micro-natural shapes, celestial landscapes or geological structures, thus   leaving uncertainty of perception and appearance in the viewer. His colourful objects are always the results of an experimental production process that generates in an alchemy of colour.
