Pierluigi Rolando Sculpture Mixed Technique Contemporary

Citadel 2001

Mixed technique sculpture: iron, wood and photographs. Pierluigi Rolando, an internationally renowned designer, graduated in textile engineering and established himself primarily in the cashmere textile industry in the family business, he creates garments that he himself defines as “cashmere sculptures modelled on the human body”. At the beginning of the 1970s, he switched to design with collections for active sports and he contributed to the birth of Fila. In his free time, he alternates his sculptural interests with pictorial interests; he makes up figures in expanded polystyrene and collages in wood, cardboard and various materials. However, sculpture has always been his great passion: for forty years, art has been "lived hysterically in the spare time", but since 1993, Rolando has chosen to devote himself entirely to it. Using different materials such as terracotta, recycled iron, wood, he proposes various subjects, with grotesque faces with tense and suffering expressions, strong and caricatured hands, symbols of ancient and heroic deeds from a distant era, with characters of religions and mythology. His visionary universe is populated by warriors, leaders and emperors, horse-totems and imaginary creatures; his art is suggestive, fairy-tale, enchanted. The citadel presented here, which well expresses this passion for mixing very different materials, was created after the tragic collapse of the Twin Towers in New York, in September 2001: the two towers, a symbol of modernity, still stand intact inside a twisted metal plate of decline and decay, created through a twisted metal plate. The sculpture is presented in a plexiglass case.

Mixed technique on canvas. Armand Fernandez, stage name Arman, was born in Nice in 1928. He is remembered as one of the most significant and influential members of the artistic movement 'Nouveau Réalisme', the European declination of the American New Dada. The Nouveau Réalisme was founded in 1960 in France by the critic Pierre Restany. The members of the nouveaux réalistes group tended to see the world as an image from which they could take parts and incorporate them into their works - as they sought to bring life and art closer together. They declared that they had come together on the basis of a new and real awareness of their "collective singularity", meaning that they were together in spite of, or perhaps because of, their differences. But for all the diversity of their plastic language, they perceived a common basis for their work; this being a method of direct appropriation of reality, equivalent, in the terms used by Pierre Restany, to a "poetic recycling of urban, industrial and advertising reality". Artists of Nouveau Réalisme sought out to strip art of previously thought standards that art had to mean something, they could take any object beyond its preconceived notions and present it as itself, and thought it could still be considered art. Many of them also sought to break down the glamorization of artists producing their craft in private, and due to this often times art pieces were produced in public. The work comes from the artist's studio in New York and is certified by the email of Fondation A.R.M.A.N. showing also the file number. Fondation A.R.M.A.N. is currently the only institution having the right to issue certifications for Arman's works. A picture of the painting signed by the artist and showing the file number, title, dimensions and technique is enclosed. On the back of the picture there is the stamp of the Art Gallery Dante Vecchiato which was a reference point for the distribution of Arman's works in Italy in the early 2000.

Charles Moody (1979)

Oil on plywood

Charles Moody (1979), oil on plywood. Signed on the back. The work was exhibited at the solo exhibition "Borderland" at the Gallery 8 in Milan Corso Venezia, as evidenced by the paper to the back lable. Charles Moody graduated in 2003 at the Art Institute of Boston and, after three years in Milan, chooses to live in New York. In his art the focus at trial (conceptual art, process art) rather than to the image content and it is in this scrap that painting is at its best. An art that was created by the approval of television images (almost never films) and in particular from popular soap operas. Moody's work goes beyond the mass media image by customizing the selection for special images that, in his view, offer a potential narrative; are images of transition, moments of transition from one scene to the next. The artist uses a manual oil painting to reproduce the low quality of the tv picture extolling the "blurring" of blur. We are facing a loss of spatial dimension, in a temporality confused-diffuse-intangible which is difficult to recognize the boundaries ("Borderland"). In these perceptual distortions, in which time dilates expands, each painting represents a "indiscernibilità" in which the recognition of the object that takes second place. The time of Moody is neither Chronicle nor history but suspension. (From "Charles Moody, Borderland", curated by Gianni Romano, exhibition catalogue, CorsoVeneziaOtto, November-December 2009)
