I’m very happy to write a new post after a while :)

Today in my studio there is a beautiful winter light that is just hitting the table and I like it very much.

In this period, I’m putting in order my artistic production and, looking back at my sculptures I thought I could talk about “Spes – Hope”.

The virtue of HOPE is important to me. It’s like a little insistent light that gives me the power to resist and keep going on when, looking around me, I would like to surrender to sadness and discouragement. But it’s not the case to surrender!

The wing that comes out from the oval figure, that represents life, is in fact “hope and novelty”.

Spes

Spes – 1994 50cm x 26cm x 72cm

In 1994 I was animated by such feelings when I thought and then realized this sculpture, but I think that they are still there and inside me.

The sculpture was presented at call for artists organized by the Nivola Museum. My great friend and mate at the Academy of Art Monica Lugas won that call with a wonderful sculpture called “Andalas – Pathways”.

Have a nice week :)
