Tommaso Cascella | Original prints, lithographs, etchings and illustrated books
Tommaso Cascella was born in 1951 in Rome. Painting and sculpture are natural languages to him, because of the heritage accumulated from his family during several generations.
His painting tends to a tridimensional transposition, to a symbiosis with his sculpture in bronze. The artist’s intensive chromatic compositions are a real and proper architecture, constellated with symbols, almost like an alchemical alphabet. Painting and sculpture were intended for a contamination of sight with sense. The titles of his works, usually brought from poems and literature, show his great passions for books. Cascella’s first personal exhibition was held in the Gallery of Luigi De Ambrogi in Milan in 1985. From then on the artist has held numerous solo exhibitions and has participated in many collective exhibitions.
