LIVES AND WORKS
LIVES AND WORKS
My mother imparted to me a love for the art since I was young (she was a painter), and my father granted me access into the world of work teaching me meticulous precision (he was a watchmaker), and last but not least, he was the king of the recycling too. It is that precise marriage of art and love for sculpture crafted from found objects that create the works of art introduced within this challenge.
A collection of discarded objects items, various trash items that are found washed up on the beaches or dumped along the roadsides, or simply the trappings of a junk drawer. Random paraphernalia with no perceived value, and in this case traffic signs that are fallen into disuse. These are the pieces that make their way into my studio and embark on their own transformational journey. I never know what the outcome will be. I simply do what feels intrinsically right, never censoring the absurdity that enters in my mind. there isn't a day that goes by that I'm not creating a piece, scribbling down a concept, or formulating a color palette. Everyday is an exercise in experimental play that follows the creative urge to push my own personal view on beauty. I strongly believe in the recycling goal of my project and my contribution to the environmental sustainability is the investment of my creativity in the process of giving a new life to the used objects and useless trash, giving to garbage a new purpose by transforming it into works of art. - Maurizio Sergiusti -
