London-based Brazilian artist Giacomo Picca has taken a tactile approach to designing the catalogue for his exhibition Trees for the Wood. The cover employs the texture of wood, a detail from one of his paintings, to create the impression of opening a box. ‘[My art] operates on the margins of abstraction, design and decoration. It’s a subtle balance between its design and the subject,’ according to Picca. The show, which marks the end of the year-long ArtBrazil+ series, starts this week and runs until 28 February at Gallery 32, London W1.
