Michele De Lucia - Donna immortale

Description
Michele De Lucia - Donna immortale
Metal - Plate signed - 2020

This is a sculpture by the artist Michele De Lucia, created in his personal workshop in the province of Pesaro (Marches), made entirely of iron. It represents a female figure in an upright position, reminiscent of the ancient Greek art, all in iron and very detailed to create a dense texture with a Romantic style. The face is partly made up of cement stone and partly by mechanical gears; mechanical reference pieces were also added to the wrists: a hook and a mechanical hand.

In this work, De Lucia shows interest in the meeting between human and technology, a union that almost wants to lead to immortality, to a development beyond death.
Can the aid of technology lead to this?

The work is personally signed by the artist on the base, it’s new and in perfect condition.

Weight: 13 kg.

Michele De Lucia was born in 1966 in San Felice a Cancello, province of Caserta, where he began to create his first works in his early adolescence. So he studied as a self-taught artist, and directed his interest towards iron processing, which he currently uses to create his works in his personal workshop, in the province of Pesaro, the city where he moved to live several years ago. Over the years, De Lucia has exhibited his works in Caserta and Bologna, and has collaborated for a long time with the municipality of his home town, to which he later donated one of his works for the 150th anniversary of the Liberation of Italy from Fascism.
