Bronze and marble

… The awareness of the trade and the serene acceptance of the present reconcile the sculptor with the material and its needs; the particular choice of bronze, which implies an indirect relationship with the finished work, (…) is indicative of a solid mental training that is insensitive to the sirens of fashion and the easy tendencies. The phases of work, from the cast mould to the wax, until the melting and the finish, slacken the creative tension and indicate the old days of the bottega, or workshop, conjuring up generations of experience and alchemy’s secrets.

The figures are based on impossible centers of gravity, which however determine wonderful balances; bodies and objects appear suspended on a void made of grave but invisible substance, which exists and feels, which becomes a living space, atmospheric mobility, interior environments and open air.
