Marco Di Piazza


His works evokes simultaneously anancient and modern language: the migration movements of peoples, the apcentance of the other, the collision of different cultures. Whether expressing himself through painting or sculpture, Di Piazza always aims for the essential, a dry shape without any deception or illusion. On the one hand, using lines and sign, andon the other hand rough, chiselled, unpolished stones, with no quest for beauty as or a particular effect, we continuously take part inthe staging of this movement and journey. On paper or through lines in bronze or still or stone.A journeywhich starts with the family and familial intimacy, leading us into contemporary society and grasping its moods, conflicts and continuous changes. In his works the abstract blends with the figurative. Di Piazza talks about the journey of those without a home and passionately desires both intimacy and harmony. Marco Brogi
