Sick

This was the centre piece of my recent solo show at Futura Gallery, Pietrasanta during the summer. The show featured sculptures depicting several emoji characters that have become so ubiquitous in messaging as a means of conveying emotions.

Summer is in full swing in Pietrasanta. As it is a stone’s throw from Forte dei Marmi and  Viareggio, the beach takes precedence during the day and all the action takes place in the evening.

Futura Art Gallery, Pietrasanta

New Gallery opening in Pietrasanta

Saturday, April 7, 2018 marks a date in the history of Pietrasanta as the day when the Gallery Futura has its grand opening.
In fact, the new Futura contemporary art gallery has a historic pedigree as Fienilarte, but with a new approach and spirit thanks to the direction of Claudio Francesconi, former founder of Gestalt Gallery.

Futura is opening with a project of important cultural interest, a collective exhibition totally dedicated to the age-old and stimulating relationship between art and science: an exhibition dedicated to one of the most mysterious and evocative symbols in the history of science, Pi Greco.

The exhibition entitled Pi Greco will begin with a short presentation, re-proposing the traditional #PillsOfArt review previously produced by Fienilarte, with a short speech by the teacher of mathematics, Professor Letizia Vaioli and will also have the honour of hosting the lawyer. AnnaPaola Negri Clementi, curator of the same foundation. The artists on show will be Paolo Dovichi, Szymon Oltarzewski, Mimmo Paladino, Tom Jó Coladelli, Anthony Moman, Philippe Delenseigne, Alfredo Sasso, Girolamo Ciulla, Roberto Fallani, Armando Marrocco. Ten artists of diverse experience and nationalities, united by the common goal to represent an enigma that has always entangled the minds of scientists: the Pi Greco.

Inauguration: Saturday 7 April at 6.00 pm
Exhibition Time: 10.30-13.00 16.30-19.30
Address: via Garibaldi 10, Pietrasanta, Italy

Sabato 7 aprile 2018 segnerà la piccola grande storia di Pietrasanta come il giorno in cui la galleria FUTURA ha ufficializzato la propria apertura.
In tale data aprirà, infatti, la nuova galleria d’arte contemporanea Futura dall’eredità pluriennale di Fienilarte ma con un’impostazione ed un’attitudine tutta nuova anche grazie alla direzione di Claudio Francesconi, già fondatore di Gestalt Gallery.

Futura decide di aprire la propria programmazione con un progetto di elevato interesse culturale, con una mostra collettiva totalmente dedicata al secolare e stimolante rapporto tra arte e scienza: un’esposizione dedicata ad uno dei simboli più misteriosi ed evocativi della storia della scienza, il PI GRECO.

La mostra intitolata appunto Pi Greco sarà presentata da un breve seminario, riproponendo la tradizionale rassegna #PillsOfArt precedentemente prodotta da Fienilarte, con un breve intervento dalla docente di matematica, professoressa Letizia Vaioli e avrà l’onore di ospitare l’avv. AnnaPaola Negri Clementi, curatrice dell’ominima fondazione. Gli artisti in mostra saranno Paolo Dovichi, Szymon Oltarzewski, Mimmo Paladino, Tom Jó Coladelli, Anthony Moman, Philippe Delenseigne, Alfredo Sasso, Girolamo Ciulla, Roberto Fallani, Armando Marrocco. Dieci artisti di esperienze e in alcuni casi anche nazionalità diverse, uniti dal comune intento di rappresentare un enigma che da sempre aggroviglia le menti degli scienziati: il Pi Greco.

Ci dice Letizia Vaioli, “Pi greco è il rapporto tra una circonferenza e il suo diametro. Significa che se prendiamo un filo lungo come il diametro e lo sistemiamo sulla circonferenza, questo entra tre volte e avanza un pezzettino. È quel pezzettino, strano a dirsi, che contiene l’infinito. La divisione ha un resto che non può essere scritto sotto forma di frazione, le cifre dopo la virgola si susseguono senza fine e sfuggono a ogni possibilità di previsione.”

Infiniti spunti e infinite riflessioni popolano questa mostra, un’onda travolgente di idee e suggestioni che ci fanno capire quanto sia perennemente stretto ed avvincente il legame tra l’arte e la matematica; l’opera stravolgente in bronzo di Oltarzewski, la piccola deliziosa installazione con siringhe di Moman, il sottile e trascinante gioco scultoreo di Delenseigne, la prestigiosa partecipazione di maestri dell’arte, come Mimmo Paladino, Armando Marrocco e il già largamente celebrato in questa terra, Girolamo Ciulla.

Vi aspettiamo sabato 7 aprile per questa mostra unica e avvincente e per un emozionante incontro sul tema sviluppato.

Work In Progress
I am transforming multiples of a single object, which on its own is loaded with symbolism, but in a group becomes an aesthetically pleasing object. This is called Lush and pays homage to plump, luscious lips whether natural or enhanced.

Anthony Moman Transforms Syringes Into Coveted Works of Art

Anthony Moman uses many syringes to create one image. Why syringes ? Their use in his sculptures is highly symbolic. The invention of syringes has arguably saved humanity, but, like many technological advances they can either prolong life or become a tool of destruction. Syringes are highly emotive and divisive so when confronted with a syringe can provoke a host of different reactions, mostly negative. They can, however, alleviate pain, cure and protect against life threatening diseases, and change the way we look and feel about ourselves.
Our very existence can depend on one syringe, and they deserve our respect and their place in the history of humanity.

The Quiet Man in syringes on marine board inside a plexiglas box. I used the film by John Ford starring John Wayne (maybe I just should have called it John) as inspiration. I do not shout about my art because I want to let it speak for itself directly to the viewer. I will leave the weighty tomes to the art curators and critics.

wild-child-butterfly-syringe-art-sculpture-anthony-moman

Wild Child continues Anthony Moman’s use of syringes in art. The syringes have an ambivalent,controversial meaning. For some they evoke feelings of terror  triggering childhood memories of visits to the doctor to have essential vaccinations, for others the squalid imagery of discarded drug paraphernalia.  Yet syringes have most likely been the saviour of humanity but now are also associated with tattoos and cosmetic intervention such as Botox and collagen injections. The child like features and the colourful “butterfly” needles that are used to create her hair, hint at the subjects’s mischievous nature.

My latest sculptures made from syringes are currently on show at the Personal Structures exhibition hosted by the European Cultural Centre during the Venice Biennale. The show is a mammoth event and features more than 200 artists such as Yoko Ono, Marina Abramovic, Joseph Kosuth, Jeff Koons, Lawrence Weiner, Gunther Uecker, Hermann Nitsch, Dolk, Julian Opie and Arnulf Rainer. There are lesser known artists coming from diverse cultural back grounds from more than 40 countries and all are driven to present their own subjective, personal expression of their reflection on the concepts Time, Space and Existence.
If you are in Venice this year please go and visit the exhibition and prepare to be stimulated by the amazing array of contemporary art in Palazzo Mora and Palazzo Bembo.
