Antonio Sciacca - Madonna metafisica

Antonio Sciacca - Madonna metafisica
Oil on canvas - Hand signed

Photo certification of the artist holding the work.

Very refined work by master Sciacca depicting an irreverent, melancholic but still regal wooden Madonna. In this painting, the artist prefers perfection and clean lines, using bright and vivid colours. This wooden Madonna recalls the bust of a high fashion mannequin. As it often happens, the wooden Madonna is depicted with a melancholy expression. Perhaps in this case Sciacca wanted to communicate how capitalism can shape and cancel us, diverting our interest towards material things (the bag in this case).
This is such a common item that we could hardly stop and think about its deep symbolic meaning; an item that could contain all the “trifles” of the 21st century.
