“Two sculptural portrayals that highlight the volumes of each face of the mountain, but through the collapsing of their mass. In fact, in creating them, the “real” forms impressed into a rubber cast – negative imprint of the model – were reproduced without the aid of the support found in sculptural practice that offers dimensional rigidity to the mould. Borrowing the technique of mountain casts – dating back to the early twentieth century – Pugno first constructed the portrait of the mountain’s sides through observing hundreds of images and then purposefully directed the subsidence of their forms”.
