In Reflections From Sky, Helidon Xhixha disrupts a shiny surface, the area is on a special reflected in the artwork and reflections and distortions occur in the area.

In the essay by ArtAtSite this artwork is compared with the following artworks. Check this link for the essay.

Suspicion and anxiety come to me at the work Airplane Part by Nancy Rubin (Los Angeles, picture 1, more information) which is a kind of plane made of old airplane parts.

The role of vanity in our finite lives is made clear by Gino de Dominicis in his Calamita Cosmica (Milan, picture 2, more information) on a humorous way.

(Reclycling of) everyday objects play an important role in the work of Suboth Gupta (Shanghai, picture 3, more information) and in this work this appear to be an essential necessity of life. Pots and pans flow out a mug like the water.

Appare come un blocco sinuoso generatore di nitida luminosità, che deriva dall’animato gioco di riflessi sempre mutevole per il variare della luce atmosferica e per quello dei punti di vista dei passanti. E' un opera che si può definire organicamente ambientale perchè sulle sue superfici si specchiano in modo magicamente deformato tutti i più diversi aspetti dello spazio costruito circostante. Dotata di una straordinaria forza di impatto monumentale, mantenendo allo stesso tempo una singolare ed affascinante lievità plastica l’opera di Xhixha si inserisce perfettamente nel modernismo contesto architettonico. "E' valorizzando le opere come quella di Helidon Xhixha che il nostro territorio conferma la propria vocazione artistica sempre più nell'ampio respiro internazionale". Roberto Formigoni (Presidente della Regione Lombardia).
La Regione Lombardia ha scelto Riflessi dal Cielo come simbolo dell'arte contemporanea, confermando ancora una volta lo straordinario percorso artistico di Helidon Xhixha ed il valore della sua arte. Una scultura imponente, alta circa cinque metri e collocata senza basamento nello slargo all’entrata del Palazzo, in mezzo agli alberi.
Translation:
The sculpture appears like a sinuous massive block that generates a sharp luminosity deriving from a lively play of reflections that change constantly due to the variation of atmospheric light and the points of view of the people passing by.. "Sky Reflection" can be defined as organically environmental because everyone of the most divergent aspects of the surrounding buildings are reflected on its surface in a magically distorted manner. The sculptures of Helidon Xhixhia are at once astonishingly self-referential and open to the external word, and it is precisely through this complexity that they become inexhaustible sources of imaginative stimulation and reflection.
His art works have particular innovative characteristics with a highly distinctive plasticity and light effects infused by the artist’s energy-charged approach to working steel. The sheet metal is bent, modelled, essentially deformed, through the vibrant, complex interplay of curving concave and convex undulations. One might say that the artist, rather than merely sculpting the materials, uses them to sculpt space and light, or, in other terms, that he transforms the force and energy of creative action into sculptural matter which, in turn, is transformed into luminous energy. It is not by chance that many of his metal plate works have titles such as ‘Energy’ or ‘Light’.
The Lombardy Region has chosen Sky reflection as the symbol of contemporary art, confirming yet again the extraordinary artistic career of Helidon Xhixha and the value of his art. A sculpture which measures five metres in height and stands without a base along the stretch surrounded by trees leading to the building's entrance, this public works of art blends seamlessly into the highly modern architectural context and has an extraordinary impact.
