In over fifty years’ work, Paolo Bellini (Mendrisio 1941) has conducted a very singular research in the field of sculpture, with studios first in Chiasso, then at Tremona in Canton Ticino (Switzerland).
This catalogue and the exhibition explore his most recent work with some forty sculptures representing synaesthetic relationships entailing an interaction between graphic-sculptural elements, namely between structure and space, in a grammar that unites the iconographic image (the work) with the expression (the thought). The artist’s creative process appears the result of long and stubborn experience, animated by the interaction between purposefulness and sensibility, in which each fragment finds its perfect location in the definition of the visual narrative.
