It represents the process of artistic destruction-reconstruction, aimed at creating a work that is ever closer to beauty. To give life to something beautiful, it is necessary to continuously destroy and build, even if it is a process that brings with it suffering. The contemporary vision of the construction-destruction cycle is reinterpreted here, showing one of the many facets of beauty as the arrival of a perpetual process.
Daniele Fortuna, artist born in Milan in 1981, since his early teenage, thanks to his passion for art, visited artist studios and art galleries among the most important of the city. He studied at the IED (European Institute of Design) in Milan, cultivating a strong interest in art and design.
He then moved for study and work in Ireland, in the south-east, near Dublin. There he worked in a lighting studio, where his interest in wood, the material that will be the foundation of his sculptures, was born. From the technique of carving, wood could in fact be composed in different shapes and patterns allowing the artist to give plastic shape to his ideas.
