The human figure remains at the heart of the artistic concerns of Brescia-based Giuseppe Bergomi – and of the 2012 Sculpture Season in Pietrasanta. The artist shows sculptures and paintings, some never-before-seen; his is an examination of the confluence of timeless beauty, and daily reality.
Pietrasanta, on Tuscany’s northwestern coast, is known as “Italy’s Little Athens” – for its artistic life and its marble studios and bronze foundries. It becomes the center of the sculpture world for a second time this year with this major sculpture exhibition which follows Fernando Botero’s smash exhibition of monumental bronze figurative works. Bergomi this time shows 60 works in the “Citta d’Arte’s” center; the sprawling exhibition of sculptures, and paintings – curated by Lea Mattarella and Claudio Strinati – takes over the exhibition spaces of the Church of Sant’Agostino and the city’s main Piazza. Three new monumental works, all produced in Pietrasanta – one in stainless steel, one in Corten and the “Ellisse,” pictured above, in bronze – will be on shown in front of the Church.
You can see more of the artist’s works in a photo gallery here.
