Antonio Sciacca - Madonna metafisica

Description
Antonio Sciacca - Madonna metafisica
Oil on canvas - Hand signed

It comes with a photo of the artist holding the work.

Refined work by master Sciacca depicting an irreverent, melancholic but still regal wooden Madonna. In this painting, the artist prefers perfection and cleaning, using bright and vivid colours. This wooden Madonna recalls the bust of a high fashion mannequin. As is often the case, the wooden Madonna is depicted with a melancholy state of mind. Perhaps in this case, Sciacca wants to communicate how capitalism can shape and nullify us, diverting our interest towards material things (the stock exchange in this case).
This is such a common item that we could hardly stop and reflect on its deep symbolic meaning; an item that could contain all the "futility" of the 21st century.

Very refined work by Master Sciacca representing an irreverent, melancholic but still regal wooden Madonna. In this painting, the artist prefers perfection and cleanliness, using bright and vivid colours. The wooden bust of this woman is reminiscent in every way of the bust of a high fashion mannequin. As often depicted, the wooden Madonna, has a melancholy soul and perhaps in this case, Sciacca wants to represent how capitalism can shape and cancel us, diverting our interest towards something material (the bag in this case). It is an object so common that we could hardly stop to reflect on its deep symbolic meaning, where perhaps inside it preserves all the "futility" of the XXI century.
