Salvatore Cuschera
Omaggio a Eduardo Chillida
, 2002-2003

forged iron, 165,2 × 378 × 203 cm

Tending towards monumentality as its internal need, Cuschera's sculpture always presents itself as an elaboration of compact and solid plastic forms but conceived as in formation, open, and linked to the organic. There are references to archaic sculpture in his work, even if figural allusiveness is lacking and the reference is expressed in the compactness of the volumes and the conciseness of their construction. There is no lack - as is the explicit case of this work - references to the Spanish master Eduardo Chillida, for the curved surfaces, welded, in the case of the iron sculptures, freely, fastening them to each other on one side and leaving the other profiles free.
