The supreme balance of the wind
Marble sculpture – unique artwork
Private Collection Lake Como
A moment stopped in time when a whirlwind of feathers, light, after a gust of wind, fall, and land on a marble block, stopped in balance. The air and the atmosphere become part of the artwork to give lightness and life to the marble.
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. And at the same time an ancient symbol, used since the Middle Eastern, Mesopotamian and Egyptian’s culture, establishes the close connection with the air. 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.
