Before the beginning

Marcantonio

He created Before the Beginning the child holding a small Maria Teresa style chandelier in his hands. The child observes carefully the reflections and the game of the crystals as a scientist studies the changing matter, as an artist observes reality and to understand it transforms it. Like the Child he loses himself in the parallels that he finds between the shape of the chandelier and the idea of an atom, a cell, the drops, water, life, birth, as if the child were holding up a small universe, a micro bigbang that contains itself and its origins, but also the origins of this poem, his one, which is born at this moment: before the beginning. The sculpture is made by hands with the techniques of classical sculpture, first in clay then molded and finally reproduced and retouched.

"I never give up irony; irony is a serious matter. If a good idea is even fun, I cannot resist to realize it" Marcantonio.
