Description

Side view of statue of human figure leaning forward with an animal figure (horse?) on the human's back by Mimmo Paladino at the Meijer Sculpture Gardens in Grand Rapids, Michigan. "Mimmo Paladino studied art in his hometown of Benevento, Italy, and has become an accomplished painter, printmaker, sculptor and draughtsman. He still resides in Benevento. His work focuses on stylized, abstracted images and narrative subjects. In Tana, the textures he uses enhance the dream-like nature of the piece. Tana also makes use of Paladino’s knowledge of geometry and physics in the balance of shapes and volumes. In this work, the face appears mask-like, with the eyes and mouth open"--Meijer Sculpture Gardens website.
