Beppe Borella

By challenging the material and dominating the veining of the stone, by playing with marble and granite, Beppe Borella, Bergamo-born artist class 1972, manages to enhance the solidity of marble thanks to his skillful craft technique: by playing with a exquisitely pop logic, the artist works on the cutting edge between memory and reality, vision and playful spirit, destabilizing the real through irony and an unmistakable touch of lightness that frees the matter from its weight.
Each piece communicates with the other, regardless of colors’ combination or aesthetic sense: the materials disappear, the volumes are lightened and the mastery that characterizes the artist emerges with power and clarity, finding its raison d’être in the perfection of form and in the harmony of repetition. Contemporary art lover, Beppe Borella first approached iron thanks to his initial work as a blacksmith.

The meeting with Giuseppe Uncini allows him to evolve and perfect his sculptural skills and his innate technical and creative ability, due to the realization of some massive works in cement and iron. These materials enable the fateful encounter with marble, a material capable of projecting him into a dimension of shapes and surfaces to sculpt and smooth in endless effects of lights and shadows.
The perfect combination of craftsmanship and creativity allows the artist to create magnificent works with high quality raw materials, precious marbles of different origins from which he creates visual and conceptual expressions characterized by ironic and powerful forms.

In a direct dialogue with Pop Art, that allows the artist to capture its most intimate, playful and captivating meaning, Borella’s sculptures push us to reflect on contemporaneity, while always maintaining the attention to the Matter that, although concealed behind a smooth and orderly appearance, manifests itself in every realization in all its power and energy.
