Exhibition of contemporary ceramic sculptures
Mariano Fuga at the Boutique Hotel Zum Rosenbaum
The natural way in which the different figures by the artist Mariano Fuga from Vicenza blend into the ambience of the Boutique Hotel Zum Rosenbaum in South Tyrol invites us to imagine them lifting themselves up the direction of the heavens from Gargnano, with their arms outstretched in front of their bodies and their mouths open wide, as if combining their voices to a collective “forward!”, in order, eventually, to land gently by chance here in Nals between real and painted rose gardens, thus metaphorically expressing the concept of “sowing art”.
About Mariano Fuga
Mariano Fuga was born in 1948 in Nove (Vicenza).
He attended the Academy of Ceramics in Nove and the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice, studying under sculptor Alberto Viani. From the 1970s to the present day Mariano Fuga has been a popular participant in domestic and international exhibitions. He has been able to win over even the severest critics with his sculptures and contemporary ceramics. He has already received several prestigious awards for his ceramic sculptures.
Insights into his works
As if in a kind of play, the individual sculptures put on mini-dramas and transform the exhibition into a thoroughly harmonious total artwork. One of the most noteworthy achievements of Fuga is that he has broadened the meaning of body language by, for example, giving arms reaching up towards the heavens a new, happy significance. Until now this gesture was always considered to be an expression of despair.
