Galleries of unique pieces and limited series.
Each artwork stems from artistic inspiration, craftsmanship and artisanal skills
La scultura stimola la parte emozionale del nostro essere e, in mancanza di punti di appoggio stabili, le emozioni personali e artistiche sembrano il modo più efficace per mettere ordine al caos della vita moderna.
Zygmunt Bauman, Liquid Modernity, 2002
Aluminum sheets folded by hand and fixed with rivets, inches 32, cm 80.
The heart is exposed as reliable and eternal mechanism, in all its human and flawed fragility, with dents and patches. Thin aluminium sheet, cut, hand bent and riveted, just like when you follow your heart.
THE MAGNIFICENT MANDARIN
Pressed and molded stainless steel, 20 inches, 51 cm. The facial expression reminds of the mysterious and selfaware expression of the protagonist of the ballet opera by Bela Bartok. Art and crafts interpretation of an error in industrial production.
Bela Bartok “The Miraculous Mandarin” (Csodalatos Mandarin). Listen to the Berliner Philharmoniker.
Aluminum alloy casting, inches 32, cm 80. Interpretation of the crucifixion which overcomes the dramatic presence of the Cross: its absence is suggested by the impetus of the gesture.
Here, excruciating oil on canvas painting “Ecce Homo” by Honoré Daumier, 1850.
And the defamiliarizing 1973 video from “Jesus Christ Superstar”, by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
I LOVE THIS COUNTRY
Marble from quarries in Tuscany, Cave di marmo di Carrara, inches 14, cm 35.
Contemporary interpretation as parody of classical elements and fairy tales characters – some may see resemblance to notable characters of our times as in the Italian cartoonist Vauro‘s interpretation.
Humpback Whale in galvanized iron, 20 feet, 3,5 meters.
The large cetacean shows here his playful side, with memories of long journeys leaving traces on the surface in dents and patches.
Qui listen to Moby Dick by Led Zeppelin, the drum solo…
Galvanized iron, 20 feet, 3,5 meters.
Our rocket shows here a flawed mechanism otherwise sophisticated and lethal. The imperfection of the artisanal manufacture declares its fragile human origin, thus fallible.
Swiss pine wood, 70 inches, 180 cm
This character keeps trace of the scented pine wood which it’s molded in: a messenger on the public street.
THE BEAST IN ME
Metal, wood, resin. 34 inches, 86 cm.
Leone the tenth, a lion and a kid, young Pope of the Medici house, is hopeful about his future on his trip to Versilia, Northern Tuscany. And he brings gifts to Florence, in the 16th Century Italian Renaissance – funny, colourful balls in his lap.
Wood, dimensions: 55 10 16h inches.
Imitating Nature while recreating the primitive majesty of the Mountain, still an unmatchable work. It’s substracting from the perfection of Nature.
