Salvatore Arancio: Art Rotterdam

Since taking part in The Cosmos residency and making use of the ceramics studio at Wysing in April/May 2012, Salvatore Arancio has further experimented with the medium of ceramics.

Last October, he went on a residency at the Museo Carlo Zauli in Faenza, Italy and at the beginning of 2013 was selected to participate in the Sundaymorning@EKWC European Ceramic Work Centre Artist Residency, ‘s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands, where he produced a new body of sculptures that he will present at Art Rotterdam together with a few selected photo-etchings and collages.

His new ceramic sculptures and works on paper shown at Federica Schiavo Gallery’s booth are inspired by his ongoing interest and investigation into ideas of nature and its merging with science, alongside the ability of myth and legend to introduce an exploration of the mystical.

Salvatore Arancio is also exhibiting new work in a solo exhibition at Federica Schiavo Gallery, Rome, 2 February - 16 March 2013.
