Porzione di Capitelo by Matteo Pucci Moraldi
Here the external form is reduced to a mere shell, which it collects and encloses within itself an unexpected vitality, now capable of opening up and showing itself. Wary of what we see, incredulous of finding inside a body something different from the element that usually composes it externally, we are amazed by so much unexpected wonder, as at the opening of a shell.The matter here deceives and confuses us, redraws the boundary between artificial and organic, opening the doors of the possible, with amazement, to new forms of beauty.

Matteo Pucci was born in 1994 in the province of Florence. He attended the Academy of Fine Arts of Carrara, where he refined his technique and defined the bases of his personal and artistic research, research that continues today, reshaped and changed throughout those years, strong of experiments and reflections, ready to discover himself and to be discovered.
The artist sets himself the goal, through the manipulation of the material, to bring to light an unexpected vitality of the
material itself as if it was birthed by different realities. This forces the spectators out of their torpor, thus coming into contact with unexpected, almost alien contexts, where the nature of things as usually known is revealed in an unusual way.
Bringing the work to a different level, no longer artificial and immobile, but organic and alive. The unknown and unusual growth and stratification of matter, give life to new organisms, cells, and elements, at first glance known and familiar, they gradually become a new cocoon, rich in life, which plays on the precarious boundary of the real and the possible.
