About The Artwork

"I am nature (Star man)" is a sculpture that depicts Star man (fundamental character of my works) but not in metal as usual. This work is the first of a new cycle of sculptures that represents human, vegetable and abstract figures with the base material of the realization the transparent resin and its variables. I do not deny that making this work was very, very difficult as I had to explore the use of a material and organic elements with which I had worked little and only for some preparatory experiments. To create this work, I had to bring into play many skills of my life and training. From poetics to drawing to statics to the ability to use chemistry and equipment of all kinds and to partially know the herbal and vegetable essences inserted in the sculpture. I am very proud of the final result which materialized the idea that was in my imagination. Star man has returned from the future and reminds us that he comes from the earth and continues to be part of the nature and life forms of this planet or at least derives from it. This sculpture was also born from my growing fascination with the plant world and satisfaction in being surrounded by it every day. I basically work in a building surrounded by pre-mountain wilderness and am awestruck by the beauty of nature. The cycle of condensation and dispersion of matter has not ended, it has only found a new way of interpreting the void (transparent resin). My brain is already galloping in this new direction and with time new works will follow. At the beginning of November 2023 it was on display at Paratissima 2023 Turin in a historic room overlooking the Mole Antoneiana (a symbolic building of Turin) and immortalized in photos by several thousand visitors (main photo).

Michele Rizzi is an Italian artist born in Turin in 1971 (he currently lives near Turin Italy) 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). 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, organic and vegetal figures (real, abstract or fantasy). 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 futureand therefore at the same time have a double aesthetic value: archaic and futuristic . 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. He recently started a cycle of sculptures with the main material being transparent resin and vegetables and materials present in nature. 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.
