The sculpture of Gianpietro Carlesso (born 1961) combines materials such as stone, marble and iron. Over the past 30 years he has produced, first, the Weiche Formen (Soft Forms), then the Decostruzioni (Deconstructions), the Plant and Seed Forms and finally the Curvatures. Although Carlesso’s art always addresses the human being, people are never directly recognizable in his works.
