“My work is intended to manifest the crystallization of time, space, matter, and energy. It is very connected to the context where I live part of my time and where I produce it, along the Brenta river in a small town called Nove” – Alberto Scodro
Glenda Cinquegrana Art Consulting is glad to present our Online Viewing Room dedicated to Alberto Scodro by the title “Crystallization of Time.”
The online show is a celebration of the artist’s strong relationship with nature which defines his practice. Alberto Scodro‘s artistic inquiry is a process aiming at creating a path between the inside and the outside, and revealing the Man inside Nature and the Nature inside the Man.
The leitmotiv in the work of Alberto Scodro (1984, Marostica) is the experience of space, time, and matter. Scodro’s artistic practice arises from an extensive process of collecting, transforming, and stacking elements, to eventually arrive at ‘natural’ materials, which are reminiscent of crystals, coral reefs, and other geological processes and structures. He also uses and transforms technological components (lamps, and other objects produced on an industrial scale) and thus bridges the daily reality of contemporary man and the pristine landscape.
The work of Alberto Scodro is closely related to the Italian tradition of Arte Povera and could be in the movement that Janet Bennett defines as vitalist materialism. Indeed, the life of matter is a recurring concern in most of Scodro’s works. He cultivates his garden and lives almost in self-sufficiency.
