Gianfranco Meggiato

Gianfranco Meggiato was born on August 26, 1963 in Venice where he attended the National Institute of Art studying sculpture in stone, bronze, wood and ceramics.

In his work, Meggiato looks to the great masters: Brancusi for his research on the essential, Moore for the internal-external relationship of his motherhood and Calder for the openness to space of his works. Space, in fact, enters Meggiato’s works and the void becomes as important as the full.

The artist models his sculptures after the biomorphic fabric and the labyrinth, which symbolizes the tortuous path of man in his search to find himself and reveal his own precious inner sphere. Meggiato thus invents the concept of “introsculpture” in which the observer’s gaze is drawn to the interiority of the work, without being limited to the external surfaces alone. “On a formal level, space and light do not delimit the work, sliding them like a traffic circle, but penetrate inside, enveloping the lattices and entanglements and coming to illuminate the central sphere as an ideal point of arrival.”
