Bruno Catalano’s “Disappearing” Sculptures

by Danny OldaPosted on

Artist Bruno Catalano‘s rather large series of life size bronze sculptures is poetically titled Travelers.  The group of sculptures depict very different people but each walking with suitcase or bag in hand, a few sitting on their luggage.  However, large swath’s of each person’s body is missing as if disappearing or torn away, the sculpture somehow still able to stand.  While the subjects are clearly literal travelers, they also to appear be traveling in some symbolic sense.  The sheer number of sculptures almost resemble a human migration, a sort of shared journey.  It may be that Catalano’s Travelers search for a personal fulfillment illustrated by a literal emptiness.
