Born in Civitavecchia in Italy in 1967, Gianlorenzo Gasperini is a graduate of Rome’s Academy of Fine Arts where he specialized in sculpture. From 2001 to 2012, large-scale, bronze sculptures by Gasperini were on permanent display at the Opera Gallery in New York.
In recent years, Gasperini has been working with alternative ‘poor’ materials including synthetic resins, wax and gesso, creating a series of sculptures that possess a distinct sense of line and movement while exploring the theme of balance and equilibrium.
RvB Arts is also pleased to include in its catalogue Gasperini’s tempera and acrylic drawings. These nude preparatory studies were drawn from a live model, hence their direct, spontaneous quality.
