About the work :

SW8 is a sculpture made of larch wood and gold leaf by Italian contemporary artist Mattia Bosco.

The artist's process is profoundly different to that found in traditional sculpture, in which the sculptor starts off with a block of stone - which contains the desired and imagined form within - from which he removes surplus material. In contrast, for Mattia Bosco, the sculptor's intervention is simple, confined and restricted, and aims only to draw out and purify the form already present in the stone. He says: “It is not a case of man on one side and the world on the other, […] the relationship between me, who is sculpting, and the material itself, is a tussle between two parts of the world, engaging in a show of force."

Although his artistic research focuses primarily on sculpture in stone, Mattia Bosco also works in ceramic and wood, exploring the potential of the different materials, within the context of a mutual relationship of coalition. The artist is also particularly appreciative of wood, on account of its versatility. For him it is about the body of a plant, as a living being. The sculptor thus performs a powerful act; one that involves transforming the form of a body.

This artwork is a one-off piece sold with a certificate of authenticity.
