Alessandro Marzetti

Alessandro Marzetti’s alabaster sculptures, which he calls Stone Drawings, are made by using age-old techniques and feature an elegant thread-like appearance, light and airy. A sort of sculptural handwriting in which strips of worked material draw shapes suspended in space and enclosed in thin cubic cages, which are not seen as oppressive structures, but as space measurers. “Sculptural gestures” which bring reason and emotion, abstraction and realism together in a vision that shapes and fills emptiness. It is the action of man upon nature and all it takes is a mark to make emptiness into a shape.
