The most fulfilling geometric shape is circle, the motif of this project. Two C-shapes, or semi-circles display the forming, cracking, integral or fragmentary, closing and opening of circles. The co-existing energies demonstrate a dynamic tension and an unstable balance. This sculpture of lines only sets itself apart from other sculpture of substantial volumes for it doesn’t occupy space, it liberates space, and thus it is able to have dialogues with the space and at the same time, establish a more active relationship with the audience.
Italian artist Riccardo Cordero had taught in the Accademia Albertina di Belle Arti di Torino,and during his art career of over half a century, he has exhibited frequently in major international art venues. Cordero had been invited twice to stage his solo exhibition in la Biennale di Venezia, one of the most significant art events throughout the world. The artist's early works integrated fragmentary and organic shapes into regular geometric forms. In recent years he began to bend metal tubes of identical dimensions into curves to constitute rational, rhythmic and multi-layered structures. Devoted in metal sculpture for a long time, Cordero never loses his vigor and creativity. In an anthological exhibition in 2013, curator Martina Corgnati used the words Iron Giant to praise his amazing art energy and extraordinary accomplishment.
