At the recently-held Roskilde Festival, in Denmark, one would have found remarkably detailed sculptures of the human form. Designed by Italian artist, Edoardo Tresoldi, these colossal figures are painstakingly hand-crafted, by joining several pieces of metallic wire mesh. Tresoldi’s expertise lies in recreating the subtle facial expressions and contortions, the minute wrinkles in clothing and even the various intricate postures of the body, with breathtaking clarity and depth.
More surprising, perhaps, is his choice of the artistic medium. Twisting the lifeless, and somewhat dull, pieces of the wire mesh, Tresoldi creates exquisitely detailed and expressive sculptures, as tributes to the beauty and complexity of the modern man. Speaking about his artwork, the designer said:
Through these figures emerging from wire, I strive to capture the relation of the human body to space. The unimposing transparency of the material is intended to offer a moment or a memory: as in a photo or a letter.
