Title: Under the Skin
Artist: Alessandro Gallo
Gallo’s finds humour in imaginary situation, combining human and animal in psychologically curious hybrid that intends to perfectly evoke the predisposition and personality of a character. The portion of animal perversely conveys a heightened sense of anthropomorphic lyricism, so frequently deployed as placeholder for an emotive quality that they become the actual embodiment. Exquisitely sculpted from ceramic and hand-painted & glazed to a representational finish, ’Under The Skin’s flappy, armoured lizard scales morph into a whorl of tattoos, the artist lending the torso’s skin an impressively leathery articulation.
