Welcome to Italozazen, where the art you encounter is a dynamic interplay between elemental forms and philosophical inquiry. Crafted from a variety of materials like clay, stone, wood, and cloth, each piece undergoes a transformative journey. Left to weather in the dry tropics, the works accumulate organic traces before being sealed in clear casting resin, creating a dialogue between the material and the ephemeral. Two driving philosophies underlie this process: first, a humanistic focus on capture and containment, echoing agrarian revolutions; second, an exploration of modality, capturing the transient in fixed form. Each scratched surface reveals an archival impulse, inviting you to delve deeper into questions of change and identity. Here, art isn’t just a visual experience—it’s an existential exploration.
