Oswaldo Maciá work about
CONVERSATION ASPHALT AND SALT

Conversation Asphalt and Salt
1996
Olfactory sculpture

When an artist makes an artwork there will always be a decision as to which material is right for the argument and communication. In ‘Conversation Asphalt and Salt’ the smell of the asphalt—a form of petroleum—fills the gallery space and visitors are invited to taste the sea salt filling the asphalt form.
This monochrome sculpture plays with the concept of containment and initiates a dialogue of the senses.

Presented at: Clove Gallery, London The images show the work in the artist’s studio in Leytonstone, London
