Paolo Grassino’s strange sculptural creatures teeter between organic and manmade forms. Using both contemporary synthetic materials and elements such as iron and wax, his contemplative inhabit spaces across the world. Further, some of the Italian’s figurative works appears as though it’s still coming into form, rather than already realized.
“His work offers a thought on the drift of the modern society, suspended on the edge between natural and artificial,” a statement says. “His work is moreover a research that regains the fullest sense of manual skill: Grassino works with synthetic rubber and polystyrene but also with more traditional materials like wax and solid concrete. With a slow and patient weaving work the artist brings his work to a spectacular level.”
