Fernando Mastrangelo’s Sculptural Mirrors Reference Dubai

New York based artist Fernando Mastrangelo’s latest work, The Capital Collection, is a series of sculptural mirrors that tell the story of Dubai. Mastrangelo used natural materials as metaphors for Dubai’s natural resources in order to portray the city’s ascension into an economic and architectural powerhouse.

Titled Aurora, Marina, and Sahara, the trio of mirrors are cast from hand-dyed sand into organic shapes to reference an architectural oasis emerging from the desert. The Sahara mirror honors Dubai’s primary natural elements – sun and sand, Marina is an interpretation of the waterways that make Dubai, while Aurora captures the abstract reverence for Dubai’s sunsets.
