Cicles and themes

Horses, Horses and Riders, Towers, Owls and Cats; Landscapes and Etruscan combs; Female and mythological figures; Warriors, Icarus figures and Masks.  These are the themes of Claudio Nicoli’s mythical figure repertoire; through them there is revealed the dramatic sentiment with which the sculptor looks at today’s alternating rapport between man and nature.  A regaining of energy transmitted by the myths, but also from the identity of the earth itself as the point of origin; “Where the subject coagulates, where there is pain, where it is smooth, the light passes through and slows.  A continuing research towards a new existence, mental deferment, a twisting tension that acts from inside its post modern heroes, to sculptor like an act of love, an act of truth.   It is man who submits frontal nude to its fate, conscious of his own human limits and of his own divine privileges.
