Massimiliano Pelletti’s Fragmented Classical Sculptures

Name
Photographer
Words

Sculptural artist Massimiliano Pelletti lives and works in the Italian town of Pietrasanta. Born to an artisan family, Pelletti honed his skills in the processing of marble through lessons with his grandfather. Now, his practice has evolved into a contemporary contemplation of the material, and in this series of works, he fuses the classically formed marble busts with crystalline forms. Through this, Pelletti considers the tensions between careful craftsmanship and chance. His sculptures, as an end result of this experimentation, speak poignantly of new growth contrasted with decay, presenting a thoughtful interaction with iconic imagery of a bygone era.
