From June 22, 2018 Genus Bononiae hosts in Santa Maria della Vita, the exhibition “Sub Lucem – prima che l’alba accenda i colori“, dedicated to the Bolognese sculptor Mauro Mazzali.
The exhibition, curated by Graziano Campanini, traces the most meaningful steps of the sculptor’s artistic activity through thirty works in bronze, wood, terracotta, plaster and silicon rubber.
Mauro Mazzali, already director of the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna and a sculptor of high expressive quality, is able to shape vivid and lively figures with various techniques.
In the exhibition there are busts in terracotta, plaster, angels in bronze expression of sensuality.
The last works, large bas-reliefs made using heterogeneous plastic materials, bring out the problems that contemporary nature has to face, attacked by climate change, wars and pollution produced by human waste.
