Silenzio

Testo in italiano alla fine della pagina

“Silenzio” is my latest sculpture. It is sculpted in tuff and it is born from my actual research.

With its soft shapes, it wants to evoque feelings of calmness, moments in which everything is about listening.

I like to stare at it and, in the absence of every action, let everything flow. It’s a reaction to the excessive stimuli of this historical moment, and it is also a recall to stop ourselves without feeling guilty if we do so.

 

“Silenzio” è l’ultima scultura che ho fatto. E’ scolpita nel tufo e nasce dalla ricerca di questo periodo.

Vuole  evocare con le sue morbide forme sentimenti di calma, momenti in cui tutto è ascolto. 

Mi piace guardarla e in assenza di qualunque azione, lasciare scorrere ogni cosa. E’ una reazione all’eccesso di stimoli di questo momento storico, e anche  un richiamo alla necessità di fermarsi senza sentirsi in colpa se lo si fa.

Spes – Hope

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 – 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 :)

Art of nature: olive trees sculptures.

By paolafalconi   /     Oct 26, 2014  /     Inspiring moments

Today I’ve been in the countryside of  Villamassargia in a place called “S’Ortu Mannu”. Here you can find hundreds of secular olive trees that are 6 or 7 hundreds years old having been implanted between 1.300 B.C. and 1.600 B.C.

It’s a magical place where I have had the opportunity to admire  for another time the greatest artist of all: Mother Nature.

This olive tree is called “Sa Rejna – The Queen” and, according to some experts, it’s considered the biggest olive tree of all the Mediterranean see. I don’t know if it’s really true but for sure this tree is majestic. It’s 16 mt. diameter and at least 10 mt tall. But what is more interesting is that it’s really a living sculpture standing there for at least 7 hundreds year.
