Before the Beginning (Child with Chandelier)

I created "Before the Beginning", the child holding a small "Maria Teresa" style chandelier in his hands. I consider it the most conceptual and intimate work of art I present. The child carefully observes the reflections and the game of the crystals as a scientist studies the changing matter, as an artist observes reality and to understand it transforms it. Like the Child I lose myself in the parallels that I find between the shape of the chandelier and the idea of an atom, a cell, the drops, water, life, birth, as if the child were holding up a small universe, a micro big-bang that contains itself and its origins, but also the origins of this poem, his one, which is born at this moment, Before the Beginning. The sculpture was made with my hands with the techniques of classical sculpture, first in clay then molded and finally reproduced and retouched.

Meet the Creator

"Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba was born in 1976 in Massalombarda, Italy. He attended the Art Institute and the Academy of Fine Arts.
Just graduated he begins to work in the theater scene and collaborating with architects on projects. Soon he begins to create unique pieces of design in parallel with a production of art, but step by step the two careers are beginning to become contaminated. So its design is enriched with artistic concepts. For over 10 years he worked for private or local public realizes. Connections between Man and Nature are his favourite theme; interpreting both dynamics and beauties of nature; showing the Man's attitude affecting the original. He loves thinking about his work as a direct continuation of what he used to do when he was a child, playing with everything he finds, and create what his mind imagined. Actually, looking for the aesthetic component and concept, takes ideas from the same sources he created while playing, daydreaming with everything normally surrounds him. He learned from Art how an idea could be elegant, that's why he's always looking for pure concepts and summary."
