Antonio Saporito's geometric spatialism

In the twentieth century and in contemporary art, Antonio Saporito's geometric spatialism is like the original and unique search for an ideal and spiritual language, characterized by an ascending system, mild, but strongly anchored to the matter.

This is molded and cut, shaped and perforated with surgical and geometric rigor, to represent the synthesis of Saporito's art. Copper and lead aluminum plates are cleverly transformed into labyrinths of signs, carved to let you see the overhead that unfolds beyond the matter.

The rigor and the essence that convey his works become elements to transcend reality, to look and scrutinize what exists behind the appearance. The ongoing search for the unknowable, of the future, of the unseen human mystery.

To meet the master of spatialism art movement, Lucio Fontana, in the early 60's, in Milan and Albissola studios, inspired Antonio Saporito the desire to deepen the dream and the sign of abstraction, though from academic and figurative studies. It was the years of poor, informal, provocative and conceptual art, and Saporito, remaining coherent with his style, embraces a formal idea of ​​art, beginning in the 1970s his path to geometric space abstraction.

Recognized today as an undisputed master of italian contemporary art, Saporito has exhibited in Italian and foreign museums and foundations, at prestigious galleries and Italian institutes of culture in the world.

Numerous publications dedicated to him on personal and anthological exhibitions, by Giorgio Mondadori Editori, Editorial of Palermo, Italy Arte and other art volumes.

Many art critics have written of him , including Vittorio Sgarbi, Paolo Levi and Giulia Sillato, and Angelo Mistrangelo. And many newspapers La Stampa, The Sun 24 Hours and others and countless are the awards and prizes received.
