MATTER REVEALED. ARCANGELO SASSOLINO
Arcangelo Sassolino forces the matter: glass, steel, wood, oil hydraulic rams and truck tires are subjects of a realism pushed “to the limit”, where instability, attritions and pressures, randomness, tears and forcing create works governed by tensions and unexpected events.
The artist makes use of heterogeneous and industrial materials in an alienating way, searching for their physical limits and their alternative variations.
The catalogue, which was printed in occasion of the exhibition held at the Repetto Gallery in London (from the 28th September to the 27th October 2017) with essays by Carlo and Paolo Repetto, and a conversation with the artist’s curator, Luca Massimo Barbero.
