Maternity

Testo in italiano in fondo alla pagina

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.

Maternità – Paola Falconi – 1994

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.

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…)

Art in Porto Cervo Marina

Last weekend I went to Porto Cervo Marina to the vernissage of a collective exhibition in which I participated with a selection of six sculptures.

Left: Quiete and Silenzio. Right: Abbraccio and Untitled

 

I am very happy of having been involved in this exhibition in my beloved Gallura which, together with the whole of Sardinia, has always been a huge source of inspiration. The sky, the colours, the Mediterranean scrub vegetation, the rocks sculpted by the wind and the sea, the silences and the perfumes of my motherland which have inspired many sculptures I exposed. And seeing them in that context made me joyful because it seemed like as if they were at home.

In the small square of Porto Cervo Marina, other than the “Semi Verticali” made by Pinuccio Sciola, there are sculptures made by Alessandro Lobino, Chelita Riojas Zuckermann, Szymon Oltarzewsky and my “Maestrale” made of fiberglass. Close by, Immobilsarda’s offices host some artworks by Eliane Aerts, Massimo Golfieri, Adolfo Macciocco, Raphael Mazzucco, Jean Pierre Ramos and Licia Sanna, but also some sculptures made by me and other sculptors who exhibit outside in the little square.

“Maestrale” Sculpture – Artrooms Fair Rome 2018

By paolafalconi   /     Mar 10, 2018  /     Inspiring moments, My art

Testo in italiano alla fine della pagina

Participating in Artrooms Fair in Rome has been a rather enriching experience. I arrived in Rome on a Wednesday morning, after a snowfall which entirely covered the eternal city in white. At first, I was afraid that the snow could block the transportation of my sculpture but, with all the doubts flying away, I could not wait to open the box containing the sculpture to see if it was still intact.
