italo antico scultore



"In a moment when all of the visual arts are marked by a grave sense of uncertainty and a general loss of orientation, sculpture has continued, at least in part, to cling to the values and characteristics that inherently lie within its specific materials. So it frequently comes about that the very fact of starting out from an attentive interpretation of a particular medium of expression ends up by directing the artist to the road he has to travel in order to reach his own particular aesthetic goals.
I think of Italo Antico as one of the most authentic and consciously committed representatives of those who from the very beginning take account of the expressive power of their chosen materials."
