“LAPIDARIUM” it’s an interesting art exhibition, a work in progress art show in Pietrasanta by the Mexican sculptor and painter Gustavo Aceves. Gustavo Aceves is an extremely creative artist that choose our city to make the first of a series of art exhibitions in the world.
By our side, my company made several sculptures for him and for his exhibition . The three horses that you see in the pictures are just an example, but they are really interesting from the artistic and technical point of view. i’m not enough expert to judge the artistic part, let me describe the technical one.
The three sculptures are of big dimensions , around 3 meter of length , made as follow: the first one in white bronze with a stainless steel base; the second in rusted iron with a corten steel base; the third one is made part in white bronze and part in rusted iron with a corten steel base.
Is not easy to put together materials that don’t have something in common such as white bronze and iron but hey, if it’s not difficult is not for us! As far as i know they are the first sculptures of this dimension make with this materials and the lost wax procedure of casting.
And the exhibitions is not finished…. keep the eyes open !
