About The Artwork

Marble is at the same time a support, but also an integral part of the work. Grains, colour and artistic temperature contribute to the genesis of the "Strutturazione". The machining process involves a water engraving that marks a way through the work, and the polished stainless steel inserted in it explodes the strength of the mark. The light reflected on the stone investigates the veins, lights the work, sculpts it. An extreme precision that dialogues with the irregularity of the veins. Weaves that draw the work in a natural and artificial way. Marble evokes sculpture, but is not used to create volumes or concave parts. It is thanks to the insertion of the metal parts that the work takes shape

A research on the balance. A synthesis of shape, concept, space, balance and matter. In order to enter the work of Federico Gessi is necessary to start from a project that the artist marks on a simple piece of paper, caged in the Golden Section rules and the anthropometric scale of proportions devised by Le Corbusier, known as "Modulor": the place where he can sets free all his creativity. Repeated and rhythmical measures. Proportions that refer to the canon of Renaissance beauty and which interpret, with the contemporary’s language, an all-Italian heritage of compositional harmony. The geometric perspective’s tradition becomes balance, the interpretation is the choice to put into dialogue shapes and materials, colors and linear signs. These are the bases where he founds his "Strutturazioni", interesting and vibrant artworks, as if "esprit de geometrie" and "esprit de finesse" just naturally mix. A game of balances and shining surfaces, marked with the smoothness of the paint in contrast with the roughness of the stones. Tactile sensations enclosed in lines marking the two-dimensional space, spreading outside in protruding metal elements. Cold, glazed, smooth and cryptic. Counter-parts of the Plexiglas transparency and stone veining. A game of norm perfections and variations, compensating each other. Where the colour is a pure synthesis of the space, the light is the spontaneity of the led or the reflection on the surface. The thought becomes matter in a long creative process that is starting in a carpentry, in the water-spray polishing the marble, in the laser cutting the metals, ending in the sour smell of the paint. Integrated and composed elements those are configuring the elegances of a new "Strutturazione". Watch the video while I'm at work:
