Angelo Canevari
Mirabile ( Enchanting )

1984

About

Angelo Canevari is an Italian sculptor who comes from a long lineage of artists active in Rome since the 17th century. Though his main mean of expression is bronze (he has been commissioned several works by the Vatican including the Bronze Doors of the Cathedral of Belluno and the Vatican Coins), his interest in exploring different artistic languages is a constant of his work. This piece is part of a very limited number of works where Canevari engaged in a different medium than bronze. The title "Mirabile" comes from a 17th century quote describing the work of the famous Baroque Italian artist Gian Lorenzo Bernini as a "Mirabile composto". It refers to Bernini's astonishing fusion of architecture, sculpture and painting. In this work Canevari skillfully plays with different shades of leather and a river pebble to blur the distinction between painting, sculpture or architectural piece. The piece projects a magnetic presence. It reminds the immensity and peacefulness of the golden sand mounds in the Sahara desert when looked upon from an aerial view.
