Enzo Mari
Danese, Italy, 1959

I am a big fan of the work of Enzo Mari.  Sometimes, his pieces are simple and elegant.  Sometimes they refer back to earlier periods of design but with a new-found freshness.  Sometimes, they are ahead of their time.  Ahead of its time is the case with Mari’s Variazioni Tematiche, which translates to “Variations on a theme.”

Variazioni Tematiche

In this case, the theme is a series of spheres, ribboned in green and embedded in acrylic.  The sculpture is from a series of work undertaken by Enzo Mari that investigated spherical forms encased in transparent cubes. Previously, I posted about the Relazione di Quattro sculpture. The Variazioni Tematiche is 8cm tall by 8cm wide and 4cm deep.

The Variazioni Tematiche sculpture above sold on eBay on 1/9/2012, attracted four bidders and four bids, and sold for €657 (approximately $832).  Condition was described as “perfect considering the age: no chips, no cracks, even edges and corners are undamaged.” It certainly is a remarkable and rare art edition for collectors.
