The line and the curve, disintegrated and structurally recomposed, gradually manage to escape the control of the artist’s hand in the series of ‘mature’ works conceived from the mid-1980s. At that time they parallel the artist’s reflections on cosmology and once more they show his ability to unite disciplines as distinct as sculpture and philosophy in order to constantly renew his vision.
In his series Interwinings he once again makes use of disintegrated semicircles, although in a new way of composition. The steel circles are released from their density, they twist and seek each other so as to better meet and kiss.
Born in 1920 in Italie, Francesco Marino di Teana was graduated of the Fine- Arts school of Buenos Aires (Argentine), and then moved to France in 1953.
Painter, sculptor, architecte, philosopher and poet, he devoted his whole life and all his creation to discover, develop and construct the modelization projects of urban space. He undertook numerous public and private purchases between the 1960s and the 1990s in France and as well in Europe, a set of Fontaines Monumentales at Grand Palais (Paris), the 21 meters high Liberté in the Fontenay-sous-Bois which is the biggest sculpture of stainless steel in Europe (1990). Presented as well in many museums, like the National Museum of Modern Art, Marino di Teana was subject to a retrospective at the Musée d’art moderne de la Ville de Paris in 1976. He also represented Argentina to the Venice Biannale in 1982 and won the Commandant Paul- Louis Weiller de l’Académie des Beaux-Arts Prix in 2009.
