Topologies is the latest project of visual artist Quayola which is an instalment continuing the Strata Series. Differently from the previous Strata pieces, Topologies does not describe a process of transformation, rather it focuses into the observation of objects that are already fully transformed.
The subjects of these new pieces are two iconic paintings from the Prado Museum’s collection: “Las Meninas” of Velazquez and “L’ Immacolata Concezione” of Tiepolo. Following the rules behind their visual composition and colours, the two masterpieces have prescription online been transformed into digital fabrications through the use of a custom software. Topologies consist in the exploration of the digital objects created by this transformation process.
