Two artists to "see" the soul of things. Florentine artists Danilo Fusi and Paolo Staccioli explore the world and human nature through the language of painting and sculpture unveiling the two faces that hide behind appearances. In the exhibition "The moon, the sun and the soul of things," which will be open to the public in Lu.CCA Underground Lounge & the two celestial bodies are used as a pretext to investigate the universe and the theory of opposites.
The works of Danilo Fusi, where prevail the cool colors, are linked to the moon and to his being distant and changeable. "The looks of the characters portrayed - writes Maurizio Vanni, Director of Lu.CCA -, The postures of the bodies and their symbiotic relationship with the space are always in equilibrium. They are involved in a creative process that can not guess the beginning, and that does not invite, optically, to decree its conclusion. Structural elements that, together with a sign and a controlled double luminescence - one that fosters the illusion of perspective and the other resembling a theatrical artifice - have neither a beginning nor an end, but live through a continuous and slow transformation which tends to reduce them in their incorporeal substance ".
Paul Staccioli, with its constant references to the sphere, is related to the sun radiating the planets and is a symbol of warmth and life. "His sculptures and bas-reliefs - underscores Vanni - tell stories from the dual polarity and are always related to a slow perpetual motion centripetal when they absorb energy from the universe, and when the centrifugal radiate. His figures lose identity registries in favor of a spiritual being, devoid of peculiar characteristics. His are forms that burst into space appropriating light: everything seems so joint in his being crushed and, together with the larger sphere, all smaller globes turn into a stargate dimensional showing the world and all its elements by optical not conventional ".
