About The Artwork

Drought starts from a concept linked to climate change which has forcefully highlighted their real extent. Spring and summer 2022 with almost non-existent rainfall in Italy. From this aspect, in the sculpture, at the base of the sun, a stone collected from the bed of a river reduced to a trickle of water: even the sun inserted into the stone with a cut, wants to underline the concept of its impact on the earth's soil.

My work is deeply influenced by issues related to ecology and the impact that pollution has on current changes facing the planet that hosts us. It is also a continuous research regarding the way of representing human emotions and their way of revealing themselves. It is proposed to develop an understandable language that expresses concepts beyond the aesthetic factor, and that leaves, in the observers, a trace, an emotion that can move consciences, which makes you reflect. In several works, there is, as the dominant message, a silent denunciation made, however, not of words, but of images, volumes and dimensions. In most of my works, I use advanced materials from other processes, simply because I find them suitable for the idea I had previously conceived: that it had created a storm within me. Scraps of any material, such as marble, cardboard, plastic film or cardboard, have a very strong attraction. Everything appears to me as a possibility and an opportunity for my purposes. Use daily experiences as a starting point and reconsider the perception of society. In my works, the influence of a graphic designer training is very evident, especially in sculpture; geometrically minimalist design and propensity to simplify by removing. Firm intention to regain possession of the instinctive part of ourselves, far from social tendencies and forcing. Perhaps, for this reason, love for African art, free from contamination; freeing the spirit in a pure, primordial state, diametrically opposed to the imitation of styles that we currently observe. My artistic path, from materials to disciplines, has always been accompanied by experimentation and the desire to leave behind the works of the past, which also means yesterday, and to reconstruct, in each work, a new analysis of our living identity. Attilio Calloni was born in Monza on 4/8/1963. His way of doing art, far from patterns, has already emerged from drawings made as a child. He attended the state art institute of Monza obtaining the diploma of master of art. He was a student of the architect and designer AG Fronzoni from whom he acquired the notions of essentiality 'in the forms found in his works. He has participated in group exhibitions: "artistic-mind and christmas in art. Every year he participates in a yacht design competition. Constant experimentation and versatility in the use of techniques: pencil, painting, sculpture and digital drawing. An absolute artistic totality.
