This ancient technique is applied to extremely modern forms; shapes which challenge the physical resistance of the material. Nature is just the theme for developing new shapes, which are almost abstract, and reach a minimal synthesis charged with experience.
The same predisposition towards challenging the limits of material can be found in the pottery of Roman artist Annalisa Guerri. Her starting point and inspiration is also the contemplation of nature, its unstable balance, fragility, lightness, mutation and precariousness. These aspects of reality and human existence, which are full of poetry, and the will to survive the passage of time, bring out a delicate beauty.
Annalisa uses materials to their extreme, challenging the resistance of fine porcelain, jagged and irregular shapes, which become metaphors for her thoughts.
The exhibition presents abstract sculptures, avoiding the temptation of the naturalistic and the figurative. Free forms develop from a flexible language, starting from nature towards the abstract expression of the self.
