The once fashionable decor "under a tree", "under a stone", "under a marble" is no longer interesting. But to "disguise" real marble as foam, rubber, fabric, paper or wood, so much so that people have an irresistible desire to touch this or that work, in order to make sure with their own hands what they are made of - this is already a talent that you can't hide anywhere. And it would be a sin not to share these masterpieces with the audience. So, the Italian sculptor Fabio Viale He is known for creating unusual sculptures-illusions from the famous Carrara marble, from which Machelangelo himself once created, giving out precious material for the most common "grass-roots resource". In Fabio's hands, marble is capable of such tricks that he had never dreamed of since birth. For example, the marble boat that the master lowers into the water at every exhibition does not sink at all, as one would expect. She not only successfully keeps afloat, but is also capable of taking on board a crew of eight. And all thanks to the thin (1-3 cm) walls of the floating sculpture.
A couple of years ago, both the boat and other works of Fabio Vajale could be seen by residents of St. Petersburg who attended an exhibition of sculptures, and later they could watch the launch of the boat near the Peter and Paul Fortress. Fabio believes that marble is a classic material, monuments of famous people or other pretentious sculptures should be sculpted from it, but with his "illusions" he seeks to "rejuvenate" and "modernize" this material. Art should be closer to the people, especially young people, and what else to interest them, if not mysterious, amazing works, which "inside" are not at all the same as "outside"?
So the master makes marble balloons and "paper" airplanes, "rubber" tires and "fabric" flags. These and other works of the talented sculptor can be seen on his website.
