"Medusa" is a painting created by weaving 5 colored threads around a circumference of 846 nails on a circular wooden board with a diameter of 122cm
Martin Lucchini with this work, challenging himself, wanted to try to take his art to the next level. A powerful image inspired by one of the giants of classical representational art, a complex work that pushed the artist to overcome his limits: more than 800 nails and dozens of kilometers of thread led to an inner awakening, trying to spur himself and experiment by expanding his horizons and artistic possibilities. In fact, one of his goals is to take "String Art" to the next level, dreaming of one day becoming one of the leading exponents. Therefore, he has chosen to depict a complex work, detailed and suitable to be reinterpreted with his own style: in fact, the face seems almost hollowed out, scratched and with its expressive power it brings out the string technique that the artist tries to master.
