Medusa, 2014

These new sculptures are first produced as prototypes in wood in 2014 at Calò’s studio in Vignole, an artificial island made of clay, near Venice. The wood sculptures are made from huge remnants of deteriorated oak structures for marine engineering.
They are formed by the artist in a process of experimenting, to develop potentialities for new series of works which are in the end realized in bronze.
