Mattia Novello
'Caresses From Olympus' Mixed Media, Conceptual Life Size, Figurative Sculpture

2015

Price Upon Request

About

With ‘Caresses From Olympus’ Mattia explores the journey that man takes every day to discover himself. In an era where migrants are at the center of humanity this sculpture tries to represent how man always tries to overcome difficulties by clinging to life, clinging to his ideal of freedom and of well-being. The man apparently seems colorless (white color) but strongly survives by covering himself with a thermal blanket, a symbol of hope. Made with polyurethane foam, denim, enamel, thermal blanket and plaster.
