About paolafalconi

I studied sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence and Carrara. I live in a country house in Sardinia with my husband, four kids and my Westie. My work is constantly inspired by nature, in all its forms.

Maternity

In 1994 I participated in an exhibition at the “Cittadella dei Musei” in Cagliari. I had just finished the Art Academy and I was full of enthusiasm, young and still without children. For a month I worked hard on this sculpture, which I first made of clay and then of plaster.

It was a month of continuous work, every day until late at night, of which I have a beautiful memory. I loved abstract sculpture and I also practiced it, but a part of me wanted to represent motherhood in a figurative way. And so, as always listening to my heart, I ventured into this work.

The exhibition remained open from Saturday afternoon until the end of Sunday and had an excellent success, both for the quantity of visitors and for their quality. As always happens at exhibitions, the insiders came: other artists, curators, journalists and representatives of the institutions. But many collectors and many art lovers also came, in all about 500 visitors. (more…)

The artwork changes and evolves overtime, as the person who makes it.

In the small apartment where I lived with my husband Mario in 1996, I thought and realized the work you see in these photographs while I was pregnant with my first child.

I was commissioned by Mariano Pintus, who later became a dear friend,  for his disco pub “Lagoon” in Villasimius. The place was very famous for its wonderful summer parties in the 90s and more. The work consists of 42 tiles inspired by flowers and plants – all different from each other – and a set of elements applied to the wall, inspired by the marine environment.

This year, during the summer, twenty-three years later, I refreshed the artwork, to which I am very fond. Refreshing a job I did long time ago, when I was a different person, was very inspiring. (more…)

Cradle of Incivility

Testo in italiano alla fine della pagina.

With this artwork I describe today’s world, a place where the exaggerated consumption of material goods together with human greediness is destroying the earth. I describe the invasion of plastic, of useless and polluting goods which are only useful for filling our inner emptiness and which we do not need for real.

All of this burden is borne by nature, by the beauty that surrounds us and by the health of all the living beings, in a spiral which ultimately culminates in a cradle made of garbage where an innocent baby to whom we are handing over a world he does not deserve, sleeps.

Making this artwork involved me greatly both physically and spiritually. After the endless flood in the area in Sardinia where I live in, I went to the beach as I am used to do and I found a disaster. I picked up pieces of wood and, together with them, old fishing lines, fishing weights, fishhooks, plastic, toys, pieces of glass… (more…)
