About The Artwork

Ruins from the future (New balances) is part of a cycle of paintings / sculptures called Ruins from the future and consist of material panels with an apparent materiality in cement, but in reality light because they are made of polystyrene covered with mortars and synthetic resins. The volume presents metallic elements (steel and rusty iron scraps) that protrude from the two-dimensional surface and fit into it. There are collapses, gaps in the surface and the presence of different finishes and roughness. Some areas are colored in gold and white and others are treated with synthetic resins that create a darker and glossy wet effect. Furthermore there are parts in transparent silicone. In practice, a sort of material symphony that initially has an abstract genesis but that in the course of its realization takes on a peculiar and specific characteristic, always trying to maintain a balance in its entirety. Very striking and contrasting if positioned in hyper-modern and aseptic environments, spectacular on white walls .. Like many of my works, the intent is to imagine a hypothetical archaeological finding from a future civilization.

Michael Rizzi is an Italian artist born in Turin in 1971 (he currently lives and works in Pianezza, near Turin) best known for sculptures "Condensation and dispersion of matter." Sculptures made with steel, wire and iron mesh, which enhance the feeling of discontinuity of matter (solids and voids), usually colored in orange or blue. If the sculpture of the past was essentially remove excess material, this kind of sculpture is to score the material at the points established and well-measured quantity. Regarding the forms, are prevalent human figures who suffer from the most different influences ranging from the ancient Minoan art and African (athletic and Thin figures) to the sculptures of the last century by A. Giacometti to the latest figures pseudo alien or humanity of the future, up to the recent "Manga "Japanese. The incompleteness and deficiencies are the added value of these jobs from which flows the perpetual fascination of the ruins and archaeological remains. The artist likes to think of the sculptures as in archaeological findings received from the distant future. The heroism and courage of facing life or just living is a recurring theme in these works as well as the simple contemplation, inordinate and disproportionate individual (humanity) in the presence of the universe, time and space. Painting by Michele Rizzi follows a seemingly distinct from the sculptures but for neighboring intent and in some cases coinciding with the work in three dimensions. His painting came to degrees from a figurative painting (fantastic landscapes future) to a more abstract representation, up to an abstraction that is influenced by the painting of Gerhard Richter (physical and mechanical work on the color pulled with wooden frames) from which it deviates by rarefaction and for the insertion of figures that give more or less distinct size, depth and meaning abstraction transforming it into abstract landscape. Both (sculpture and painting by Michele Rizzi) pursue the future in the knowledge that the future is essential from the past. A sort of hole in space-time (black hole) that enables the past and the future to come in contact generating overlapping and hybridization and an infinity of shades and consequent emotions. www.facebook.com/michelerizziartist/ www.instagram/michelerizziartist/ www.michelerizziartist.com
