About

Ugo La Pietra artificial nature #6 recycled fibers tapestry Ugo La Pietra presents his tapestries as a decorative exercise in homage to the “garden”; these works represent for the author one of the many exercises he developed already in the eighties to create design stimulation with green inside private and collective spaces. Each tapestry in this collection undergoes a long and delicate procedure, from the selection of various and precious fibers and technical materials processed with a production process that mainly takes place on ancient mechanical looms. The collection consists of 6 different specimens for design and color, unique pieces. "Nature: every design process that evokes it, every design that imitates it, every image that arouses nostalgia, helps us to understand the world in which we live and operate, and sometimes leads us to places where we can elevate the spirit." Ugo La Pietra.
