Mario Verdiani.

Born in Bornago (MI) in 1946. He attended the “Steineriana” school of the capital, which was then located inside the Guastalla gardens. After moving to Sanremo with his family, he continues learning the representative arts in the wake of the teachings received. He starts exhibiting in 1971. He joins the “Klipper Art Studio”, specializing in nautical subjects. Leaving him, he sets out on his own, combining his chromatic and structural research with the more prosaic activity of interior decorations, murals, trompe l'oeil etc. The basis is the lattice: the cage that prevents us from being what we would like to be. In 1985 he took over a studio in Bussana Vecchia where he made bronze microsculptures with the lost wax method. After about eight years he moved to the village of Perinaldo and then to Bordighera. His works continue to evolve: from the flat use of color towards materiality, arriving at complete structural relief. Erasing the limits and the folklorism of the easel, he goes towards a thought that demands the demolition of the wall erected in an absolutely arbitrary way between sculpture and painting. Interspersed with his artistic activity is the sailing one that takes him around the Mediterranean. The personal exhibition held at the “Circolo degli Artisti” in Albissola Marina opens up his vision of the world of ceramics: at this point the lattice gives way to fragmentation. His works are not and do not want to be reassuring. They do not want to give the wrong impression of a peaceful, good-natured, doll-like world. They can be ironic, tragic, as well as sarcastically playful. Sometimes dreamlike. These works start from a basic idea, memorized with hints on paper or other support, then proceed with the automatism of the gesture going adrift; at the end the unconscious will have elaborated the initial idea. He lives and works in Sanremo.
