MOSCHETTO (1964, Italy) is a sculptor and photographer who also creates artworks with mixed media.
MOSCHETTO, with a technical background and a past as a craftsman of stones and marbles, almost by chance come across this artistic path. He never abandoned its original philosophy but confirmed the same stylistic rigor, the purity of the lines and colors, and the same research of materials.
The incessant need for experimentation, the desire to search for particular, often expensive processes and techniques, and the need to break out of the most usual sculpture patterns, have made him unique.
By investigating language on a meta-level, MOSCHETTO creates work in which a fascination with the clarity of content and an uncompromising attitude towards conceptual and minimal art can be found. The work is aloof and systematic and cool and neutral imagery is used.
His sculptures sometimes radiate cold and latent violence. At times, disconcerting beauty emerges. The inherent visual seductiveness, along with the conciseness of the exhibitions, further complicates the reception of their manifold layers of meaning. With a subtle minimalistic approach, he tries to grasp language. Transformed into art, language becomes an ornament. At that moment, lots of ambiguities and indistinctnesses, which are inherent to the phenomenon, come to the surface.
His works focus on the inability of communication which is used to visualize reality, the attempt of dialogue, the dissonance between form and content, and the dysfunctions of language. In short, the lack of clear references, are key elements in the work. By emphasizing aesthetics, he seduces the viewer into a world of ongoing equilibrium and the interval that articulates the stream of daily events. Moments are depicted that only exist to punctuate the human drama in order to clarify our existence and to find poetic meaning in everyday life.
His practice provides a useful set of allegorical tools for maneuvering with a pseudo-minimalist approach in the world of sculpture: these meticulously planned works resound and resonate with images culled from the fantastical realm of imagination.
MOSCHETTO currently lives and works in Dubai.
