VIAGGIO TRA ARTE E MUSICA - PUNTATA 9
M° Giuseppe Guzzone
"The artist we will present is Giuseppe Guzzone and started his career over 45 years ago. The first important was in 1975 during "X quadriennale Nazionale d'Arte" in Rome Maestro Giuseppe Guzzone, despite being an established artist, he is
always looking for new inspirations and expressive languages.
The first works that I had the opportunity to admire were the "anthropomorphic islands" of which I will speak tonight.
We have found in the Maestro an eclectic and multifaceted character, and over the years, it has gone through multiple styles and techniques.
From the observation of the Artworks, I immediately found the similarity with human behaviour interesting. Obviously they are not real places, however, it is interesting to note how he managed to manifest
the restlessness of the soul through the metaphorical representations of the islands. One of the works I will talk about tonight is "Isola di
Itaca" oil on canvas representing an island on a sunny summer day.
Everything seems silent and almost in an unreal state of serenity.
In general, anthropomorphic islands are places suspended between real and immaterial, spaces that live by their own laws and codes. Each island is a world in itself with its own individuality and where human nature is represented in all its metamorphoses.
Whether the setting is nocturnal or diurnal, the relaxation rather than the distress, find ample space and interpretation in these works.
It is not clear whether the islands are female or male representations.
The artist himself with the definition "Anthropomorphic" means by human features; but the moods that find their place are undoubtedly without borders and without races.
From the series of the Anthropomorphic Islands there are works that, although in a nocturnal atmosphere, actually emanate calm and serenity
as almost only a sky full of stars can confer, others instead even if set in a sunny day reveal the anguish almost of a soul in torment.
The Artworks of Maestro Guzzone remind us that all human beings are unique, both in thoughts and in attitudes"
