Marble sculpture – unique artwork
Private collection Monza – Italy
This is a unique artwork, entirely realized by the hand in Carrara marble. Is part of the philosophy of the artist as a main symbol, an element that creates a contact between the ground and the otherworld, between earth and space. It is part of the “Feather’s Philosophy” dear to the artist and represents : the transparency and technical virtuosity that brings the matter to a high plastic stress, are inherited by the masters typical of the old continent. The feather, symbol of our time, tacit and silent announces the fragility of our state, is a mirror of an evolved and fragile human personality. Surrealist symbol’s of the ‘Carpe Diem’, that communicate the human condition, sums up the importance of the concept of the flow of the ‘time‘ that change our fate and our life. A soft and elegant sculpture, with baroque and curve shapes, that show the influence that the artist had during his stays in south of Italy and in Venice, and the conceptualism that brings this art close to scientific themes ( the theory about space and time ). Archetype of depth studies based on the concept of the existence, the basis of his artworks. Only a few are can be revealed.
This time Abele represented a floating feather, suspended in void with a transparent frame in glass, symbol of lightness.
The air and the atmosphere become part of the artwork and give lightness to the marble. The feather is a recurrent symbol with different meanings : lightness, purity, angels, birds, flight, personality, freedom, autonomy, independence. When a feather leaves a body, a new life begins with its own personality.
