About The Artwork

Andromeda awaits you (Star woman) is part of the "condensation dispersion of matter" sculpture cycle. These metal sculptures (in this case, stainless steel base, steel sculpture body) are intended and imagined by me as archaeological finds from the future. These slender and athletic figures are the result of an archaic and futuristic figure and value at the same time. Andromeda is our evolution and awaits us on some remote planet in the universe. From a technical point of view, the sculpture is the result of an assembly and processing of thousands of filiform and cylindrical steel elements with approximately double the number of welds. The voids and solids are dosed and the material is thickened more in the points that I want to highlight the most for the drawing of the figure or to create reflections in the points that will be most easily hit by the light (therefore the areas exposed to the zenith light, shoulders, breasts, abdomen, buttocks, calves, hips, back of the feet) This recent sculpture is the highest level achieved in the precision and definition of this cycle of sculptures. Very beautiful in the total design, but very fascinating the live view of every single portion. The apparently random assembly of the elements has something of a connection to jazz music. Everything seems to have a random direction but every single element becomes fundamental for the total design and could only have that precise connotation. Andromeda moves in a decisive way but the position of the hands outline a courageous but cautious and aware of dangers advance.

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.instagram/michelerizziartist/
