Michelangelo would visit the Carrara quarries to personally select the blocks of marble from which to extract his works. Yes, because each block of marble already contains the potential that will be realized through an act. In the blocks that Michelangelo selected, he already saw his David, his Piet??, his Moses.In the same way we see in the Carrarese monoliths our rectangles, squares, hexagons, octagons, and small squares. They are there waiting for us, ready to be stripped of their heavy marble clothing to come to light, in a process that is more Socratic than productive.Praise to the most classic of classics.
Revisiting is experimenting. Experimenting is part of the process we are so devoted to at Fangorosa.
Our marble. Reduced to a minimum, in thicknesses and formats. Placed on a net and cut in its most improbable form, it becomes a sheet of small hexagons, which, like jewels set in a setting, recall the surfaces of precious Byzantine mosaics. A game between arts and matter, textures and shapes.
