Opened Disk I–III
The "Opened Disk" series by Xuxo Vázquez is based on a circle. The artist divides the circular steel plate by straight cuts and connects all the resulting segments into a three-dimensional object. The colorful sculptures offer a new figure from every perspective and appeal with their clear aesthetics. The sculptures were created in the NordArt Symposia in 2013 and 2014.
