Mattia Bosco's classical studies and philosophical training lead him to sculpture. In his work, the artist establishes a continuous dialogue with the material, an act of collaboration in which the latter reveals itself. The form is kept inside the stone and the sculptor intervenes in its less significant parts in an act not of removal, but of liberation that allows the lines to emerge naturally.
The gold or silver leaf or the colors are Bosco's thrifty responses to the chromatic nature of stone.
"While, if we want, the clay is silent, the stone responds"
In the “Golden Section” series, his reasoning refers to the thought of Emmanuel Anati according to which “the first canvas of man was the stone”. The rock quarried from the mountain discovers its potential geometries through the sculptor's gesture. The stratifications crystallize in a universal time, that of art.
