It’s a love affair that began in his grandfather’s workshop. When Adam Colangelo first experimented with scraps of copper during his formative years, he had no way of knowing that the medium would deeply impact his life. In the years since, Colangelo has found promise in this extremely versatile medium.

Colangelo’s large-scale compositions speak to his understanding of copper and his desire to reveal its beauty. In treating the copper with heat and chemicals, he can unearth an array of patinas and finishes. Colangelo uses his keen aesthetic sense to create geometric puzzles of copper that are so rich in detail, each small segment offers its own earthy abstraction.

Adam lives and works in Toronto, and has exhibited work throughout Canada, the United States, and Japan.
