We present for the first time the sculptures made in plexiglass, by a young Venetian artist:
Michele GARLATO, Venice 1981
Specialized in the processing of polymethylmethacrylate, better known as plexiglass, it senses its expressive potential and proposes it as a strength of its work. Model shapes of the Venetian everyday life which, at the same time, are rich in symbology and strongly rooted in the artisan costumes of the city, as well as its inseparable link with water: the Bricola, which offers navigators a guide to the lagoon; the “Fero” from gondola, which symbolizes the city in all its parts; finally the Forcola, the bearing soul of the oar, without a doubt one of the most admired forms by the Venetian sculptors.
Through his works, the artist immerses himself in the traditional and traditional Venetian atmosphere but with a strongly modern approach, given by a typical material of the industrial era, thus merging, in a single object, past and present.
Michele Garlato has participated in various competitions and exhibitions, and his works can now be admired at the BAC ART STUDIO Gallery in Venice
