Giuseppe Gabellone

Through his practice, which combines several mediums, Gabellone created the basis for his synthesis of the surreal, the classical and the baroque. His work is characterized by strict formal research and constant experimentation with different mediums and their idioms and materials, resulting in an analytic reflection on the use of space.

Since the beginning of the 2000’s, he has been investigating different types of wall sculpture, reinterpreting traditional Italian wall relief. The work investigates the dialectics between two and three dimensions, and between representation and ornament. “Trying new things is the driving force”, he henceforth explains. He has thus set aside the production of photography of sculptures (certainly the most well-known facet of his work) to invest frontally in the sculptural field. Each new project gives way to material experimentation.
