About The Artwork

"Starman and the space time" it is part of a limited series of sculptures called "metal landscape" which are characterized by being made on metal panels to be positioned mainly on the wall. Two treated panels, corroded by time and by the action of substances, were assembled and worked with the action of abrasive tools. As in an archaeological restoration, different layers of the surface have been eliminated or highlighted (descialbo). Once the work on the surfaces was finished, influenced by it, three-dimensional figures and sculptures were inserted that complete the work and tell a story. In this case it is the story of Starman (and of humanity) who, with his historical, scientific and cultural baggage, stretches out his hand and escapes from his own limits of space time and leaves for interstellar journeys (interstellar spaceship top left) with all the difficulties and paradoxes that this entails. . Personally, I am very moved by the contrast between the warm figure of the ancient sculpture of Elena and the metallic and futuristic figuration of the context. The shine, opacity and colors of the corrosions have been stopped over time by a layer of transparent spray paint.

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
