Castrignano del Capo, 1958
Soul and matter coexist and mutually enrich into Antonio Pizzolante's works. They are like painted sculptures and carved paintings. He is able to intertwine these techniques, creating a universal language. The relationship with matter is fundamental to evoke the natural bond with Mother Earth. Extremely balanced compositions, which develop into foolproof theorems, explaining also doubts and uncertainties, within a perfect, rhythmical and vital geometrical abstraction.
