Superchio II

2015 / Carrara marble/ 110 x 87 x 90 cm





The artwork is realized during the “Forum di Scultura Contemporanea” in Carrara. It’s the last piece from the series Superchio; in this case I use a metric cubic of marble directly arrived from the caves.


“Non ha l’ottimo artista alcun concetto

c’un marmo solo in sé non circonscriva

col suo superchio, e solo a quello arriva

la man che ubbidisce all’intelletto. “


“ The  master-craftsman hath no thought in mind 

That one sole marble block may not contain 

Within itself, but this we only find 

When the hand serves the impulse of the brain”

Michelangelo Buonarroti
