Through a significant selection of his works, the catalog provides an opportunity to become familiar with his entire output and his own very personal style, which wavers between conceptual portrayals and physical expression of Giacinto Cerone.
“The impetuousness of Fazzini, the analytical detail of Boccioni and the conciseness of Fontana, the meditation of Licini and the spontaneity of Leoncillo, the constructive flair of Melotti and the perception of Novelli absorbed as values which must compete with the logical diversity of the functional unity called sculpture”. This is how Giuseppe Appella describes the work of his artist friend Giacinto Cerone. Born in Melfi in 1957, where he débuted with exhibitions and live performances, the artist maintained a constant link with his native land, despite moving to Rome permanently in 1984. He died prematurely in 2004, thus interrupting his research which took the form of continuous experiments with techniques and materials – from plaster-casts to ceramics, from marble to wood, even with daring combinations of industrial materials such as moplen, polyethylene and silicon – with which he always managed to created an emotional and physical rapport. Through a significant selection of his works, the catalog provides an opportunity to become familiar with his entire output and his own very personal style, which wavers between conceptual portrayals and physical expression. As a result, his work is difficult to locate among established art currents and movements. The first retrospective exhibition of work by the artist Giacinto Cerone.
