We offer you to look at the amazing sculptures from iron chains and wire, created by Italian sculptor Mattia Trotta.
1. Mattia Trotta was born in Savona in 1980. By education he is a mechanical engineer, so is very familiar with all characteristics of metals. Seriously, the art captured it in 2002. To convey his own vision of the world Mattia Trotta uses all his technical experience and knowledge of the properties of materials. In addition to working on collective and personal exhibition projects, Mattia Trotta creates even and theatrical scenery.
2. Sculptor Mattia Trotta is working with iron. The material he chooses for his works, all of its specific features is actively involved in the creation of a new image. The sculptor very well knows the material with which to work, so likes to call himself the master of his craft, a specialist in the treatment of such a hard material as iron. But in addition to iron for his sculptures he uses, and marble, especially for carrying out grounds for sculpture.
3. The material with which a sculptor works, the process of creating the sculpture is changing and modificeres, but the master in this case uses no welding, no soldering, working entirely by hand. For this reason, the sculpture creates a slow, but working with metal is often preceded by a long process of design on paper, starting with drawing a sketch.
4. Working with sculpture starts with a steel frame, which will then retract the chain. These iron strands, turn after turn, superimposed on the frame, gradually filling the void and showing the silhouette of the sculpture.
5. As an experienced tailor, who with his needle creates dresses, perfectly sitting on the figure, Mattia Trotta with iron threads creates a shell that is able to convey feelings and emotions. He says: "Each line has its place, the sculpture is solid but will flow through it, the wind, the air fills part of the volume, associating it with the environment". We can say that this concept is similar to the works of Gonzalez (whose work was so fond of Picasso) – sculpture seems to be cut from air.
6. When working on a sculpture of an iron is subjected to complex processing using acid solutions, accelerating natural corrosion processes. So the artist is seeking the shades.
7. In their work, especially when Mattia Trotta wants to transmit the movement of the body, the sculptor has always sought the strength of the whole structure.
8. Harmony, plastic the laws that govern the system volume, and generating each other, means that the voids are as important as filled space, and allow to better feel the hardness and density.
9. Mattia trot argues that the iron filaments are the perfect conduit for his creative energy, and they are fully able to capture the imagination.
10. Some works of Mattia trota (e.g. AngeleTerra) evoke images of antiquity, and the other (Maria) directly connected with the present moment. All his works Express feelings and emotions, is closely connected with the surrounding world.
11. Mattia trota says about his work: "Thoughts, exchange of information, emotions – everything is connected in a circuit. My chain sets the rhythm and speed to the extent in which I want to enter my work and covered light and shadow, silence and chaos, air and matter, heaven and earth".
