Art in Venice borns at the small gallery of a talent woodworker who sculpts fantastic
wood art sculptures: "Loris Marazzi" who is inspired by his own expierences , minds and daily things to transformer all of them into admirable living wood art sculptures.
Washington Post about Art and Sculpture in Venice - "Loris Marazzi Art Gallery".
Taking a walk through this magical city, I could not ignore the small gallery of Loris Marazzi in Santa Margherita Square.
Initially some beautiful garments hanging in the window had caught my attention.
I was really confused! I asked myself, "Why is there a clothes line hanging in the window of a gallery?"
My curiosity further attracted me and the magnetism of the beauty made me enter the gallery. To my surprise I found an ordinary Italian man, who I discovered was Mr. Marazzi, carving a jacket from a piece of wood. Then I suddenly realized the garments on the clothes line were wooden sculptures and what fantastic and ingenious sculptures.
By the way this was not the ideal place to keep such fantastic treasures; however it does not matter the space or the façade when real art is present. Marazzi is a very kind man and is especially passionate about his work, "His Marvelous Wood Sculptures".
Marazzi uses Cherry wood as well as Cirmolo, Walnut, and Pine wood to carve his art. He not only sculpts in wood he also works in Marble and Bronze, making wonderful pieces which now adorn gardens and swimming pools the world over.
This Venetian artist is no ordinary wood worker, the inspiration from daily things are not the only sculptures from Marazzi`s talented hands. He also carves conceptual pieces such as a life sized mans body that represents a man who is born into a new life.
"Balance", "Happiness" and "Loneliness" are a few of the names of his more important art works.
Marazzi gives to the art of sculpting a sense of innovation, invention, harmony and feeling and by bringing all of these together creates beautiful living sculptures.
I suggest you visit Marazzi Art Gallery to take delight in the beauty of his art works. If you commission his work you will have the opportunity to illuminate a wall with his sexy works of art (lingerie and underwear line) or with a Raincoat or a Shirt with hanger all in wood. Or maybe decorate your living room with his functional sculptures such as a bar in wood, a book chair or give a special touch of harmony and significance to any place in your home with one of his conceptual sculptures such as a brain sculpture called "My Mind My Force", or another entitled "My Life My Force" which is one of his more admirable sculptures.
If you know about art and love beautiful things you will truly enjoy the small gallery of
Loris Marazzi. You could spend hours just admiring his wonderful sculptures.
If you do not know how to get there ask or look for directions from his posters (they are in every wall around the city).
Do not miss a chance to meet these incredible wood art sculptures!
