The exhibition presents a selection of six wood sculptures and a series of works on paper, conceived by the German sculptor between 2020 and 2022.
Reinhard Fescharek’s entire artistic research can be read as a homage to the infinite possibilities of form and to that unlimited variety of solutions that only art, together with nature, can evoke.
This exhibition, previously unseen and presented for the first time in Italy, is conceived as a mediating tool aimed at presenting not only the final works but also the artist’s creative process. An experience that brings the visitor nearer to the contemplation and reading of forms that amplify perceptions and imaginations between the natural world, primordial figurations and symbolic references. A chance to delve into the work of an artist who, as Prof. Dr. Arne Wroble says, joins lines of research stemming from overseas, such as the Japanese aesthetic of Wabi-Sabi: a vision of the world based on the acceptance of the transience of life, the impermanence of beauty and the natural imperfection of things.
In his artworks, Fescharek derives from an inexhaustible source of inspiration that is the observation of what surrounds us: from nature with its organic compositions, to the internal structures of minerals; from archaeology, to geology; from art history, to biology. This extreme curiosity for the ‘forms of the world’ is carried forward by trust in the expressive languages of art, capable of translating form, space and material into emotional quality.
