triptych no. 4 - linen

Sculpture
$ 2,750

Reliefs carved from reclaimed wood board and hand-painted with a natural plaster pigment (limewash)

“Traces, Erosions,” the new series by Luis-Ignacio Figallo, focuses on observing the subtle tectonic patterns found in weathered natural and urban landscapes. Transferring this inspiration through wood carving, each element and shape is carefully considered to form abstract compositions that are both ephemeral and earthy.

The element of materiality is crucial in the work: the meticulous layering of the limewash paint creates subtle textures that allow the viewer to appreciate the nuances of light as it falls on the bas-reliefs. The use of muted tones throughout the series aims to encourage a peaceful response in the viewer, channeling qualities of transience, tranquility, and impermanence.

BAS Atelier is a creative practice co-founded in 2021 by architect duo Luis Ignacio Figallo and Patrisa Pruthi, inspired by the ancient decorative technique of low or “bas” relief.

Size: 28 x 42 inches | Edition of 10

About the Artist

Luis Ignacio Figallo

BAS Atelier is a creative practice co-founded in 2021 by architect duo Luis Ignacio Figallo and Patrisa Pruthi, inspired by the ancient decorative technique of low or “bas” relief.
Born out of a lifelong interest in form, texture, and light, the works are focused around craftsmanship. Each bas-relief is individually designed, carved, and painted by hand. The resulting works are elemental searches into composition, form, and depth, producing abstract landscapes that radiate and flow with the reflection of light.
