Art & Wall Decor by Xavier Cortada seen at Frost Art Museum, Miami - Four Elements at the Frost: Aer

Four Elements at the Frost: Aer

Xavier Cortada's Four Elements at the Frost: aqua, aer, ignis and terra was found adorning a wall at the Frost Art Museum. These signed and numbered, limited edition prints on Somerset velvet stuns viewers of the museum. The images of leaves on the banners belong to native trees that at one time grew at the very location of the Frost. They bring nature into the building that sits on the edge of a natural lagoon.
"The four pieces I created for my public art commission at the Frost Art Museum are “digital tapestries” titled after the Greek classical elements: aqua, aer, ignis and terra. In Greek philosophy, science, and medicine these four elements represent “the realms of the cosmos wherein all things exist and whereof all things consist.”
