"Star woman and the last vegetables"This sculpture is part of the "condensation dispersion of matter" sculpture cycle. In this sculpture, inspired by this summer's work immersed in nature, I explored the theme of vegetables and plants. By chance, while I was completing a sculpture, I hooked it for convenience (because it has no base) to the large fig tree that has lived for about 50 years near my laboratory. This vision struck and influenced me to the point that I immediately started thinking about the next sculpture. I was very interested in the image of a sculpture inserted among the plants and as often happens immediately afterwards I thought in a pragmatic and structural way that this would allow me to get around the usual base plate and would allow the creation of a very slender and light. In fact Star woman that I have inserted in the composition more than a sculpture I would almost define it as an almost two-dimensional metal drawing. The leaves in the lower part of the composition were made by copying a fig leaf from my tree and also filled with a dashed texture. The sculpture represents Star woman (figure between human and alien) inserted among the latest plant forms from planet earth. I imagine this sculpture as an archaeological find from the future that celebrates this sad memory. Very suggestive and balanced in the solids and voids and in the contrast between sparkling and opaque parts.

Michael 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. www.facebook.
