Catalogue Note

Arnaldo Pomodoro, born in 1926, Morciano, Romagna, Italy, has become renowned for his sculptures which transform space through his creations. At the beginning of his career he was exploring the interpretation of language and signs, trying to express himself through the use of a ‘secret language, full of poetic myths and personal symbolism’. The admiration for Paul Klee encouraged Arnaldo Pomodoro to interpret Klee’s linear art into dimensional elements in his early relief sculptures while the deep impact with Lucio Fontana in 1954 added Spatialism to his work. The deconstructionist elements seen in Pomodoro’s works during the 1960s came about as a result of his exposure to Brancusi’s art during his visit to America at that period. He employed fractured, intricate shapes of split lines, curves and points. Utilizing cuttlefish bone casting technique, evoking futuristic landscapes. Some of Pomodoro’s Sphere Within Sphere (Sfera con Sfera) can be seen in the Vatican Museums, Trinity College, Dublin, the United Nations Headquarters and Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York.
