    Ventique Art Gallery is pleased to present London Geodes: The Beauty Inside, a new body of work by Matteo Margaroli. London Geodes explores the contrast between the nondescript stone exterior of geodes and the hidden secrets within. Margaroli’s desire to extract this beauty references his ambition to unearth the hidden beauty within us; referencing how the cover of a book does not always reveal its contents. In the exhibition, Margaroli explores these ideas through sculpture; the outer surface of the geode rock is reimagined and recreated in metal with a crack cutting through, revealing shimmering hand-cut, individually placed crystals within. Each London Geode takes its name from a London street; the sparkling crystal mapping out the geometric urban landscape while also highlighting the city’s impact on Margaroli’s practice.
