Avio De Lorenzo

AVIO DE LORENZO lives and works in Costalta di Cadore (BL), a magic village on the Eastern Dolomites.
Through the wood, the sculptor searches the quality and the limits of the matter, using knots, veinings and various color tonalities, to create shades and depth. He transfers into matter his observations of forms and the demonstrations of nature.
In his figurative sculpture, you can see a lot of women, with roughed bodies and pointed towards high faces, that revoke the idea of classic beauty and express feelings and moments of sweet calm. They are figures, surrounded by joy, retreated in their thoughts and feelings and they infuse sweetness and calm to which observes them.
In his last works, the artist expresses contrast between the natural forms of material and the abstract geometry of his thought.
From many years, the sculptor takes part to Symposia of wood, snow and ice sculptures. He shows his works in individual and collective exhibitions. You can find his works of art also in different cities of North America.
Some years ago, the love for his land, together with that of other people, brought to the initiative “A wood statue in a wood house in a wood village”. Numerous sculptors participated to create a wood sculpture for each wood house in Costalta, realising a fairy path inside the village.
