SCULPTURE BY SEPARATION: IN SEARCH OF ANOTHER EGYPT
Thinking of Egypt and its extraordinary magic, of the pyramids and life-giving Nile, two geometric figures overwhelmingly face each other in my mind: a triangle and softened cosinusoid which depicts the river’s loops with its sinuousness.
These strong sensations gave birth to the idea of orthogonally intersecting the simple design on the parallelepiped.
It is surprising that from this intersection emerged six sculptures, all endowed in my opinion with notable aesthetic independence.
Even more surprising was the discovery that two pyramids can be made with the eight pieces removed from the edges of the original parallelepiped.
This means that nothing has been wasted.
The parallelepiped was sectioned, destructured and then reassembled to give objects endowed with a high level of beauty and a meaningful evocative power.
