The inner beauty of the can’s polished aluminum surface is revealed. By hand, I apply dents to sculpt patterns of shapes onto the can’s surface. The designs are made possible by the properties of the cylinder and the malleability of the aluminum. Thus presenting the familiar object and method in an unfamiliar way. The sculptures suggest the art of possibility, overlooked beauty and the irony of unexpected simplicity.

My name is Noah Deledda, a self taught artist. Along my journey I have explored many avenues of visual art with a few key ideas in mind. To present the beauty found in overlooked places and things. To explore curiosity, combining spontaneity and structure to achieve balance. And lastly, to introduce understated themes of irony and human perception.
