A precious meetings: Giampaolo Babetto. The Entity of Being

A precious meetings: Giampaolo Babetto. The Entity of Being

The Italian goldsmith of the “Paduan School” Giampaolo Babetto is famous for his jewelry – geometrically distinct shapes arranged into refined entities of extraordinary perfection and beauty. But the artist’s wide-ranging spectrum includes equally furniture design, silverwork, sculptures, liturgical utensils and architecture – even his design drawings have an autonomous character with artistic value.
In addition to Christian iconography, his sources of inspiration include the fresco cycles of Renaissance artist Jacopo da Pontormo, and there are echoes of minimalism, neo-plasticism, neo-constructivism, and “arte programmata/cinetica.”
The Entity of Being shows for the first time an overall view of the versatile virtuoso. The comprehensive catalog section is complemented by four contributors giving exciting insights into the work of this universal artist.
A precious meeting at the Archivio Negroni in Milan: Giampaolo Babetto talks with two of the authors, Andrea Nante and the art gallery owner Thereza Pedrosa, and with the publisher Dirk Allgaier, a refined admirer and disseminator of international contemporary art and modern craft.
