Description of the book "Arnaldo Pomodoro":
From his Triad of towering columns that highlight the distinguished collection in the PepsiCo Sculpture Garden in Purchase, New York, to his brilliant Solar Disk recently installed near the Kremlin, Moscow, as a gift to the Russian people from the Italian nation, the monumental bronze sculptures of Arnaldo Pomodoro have become familiar elements in the urban landscapes of America and Europe. Painstakingly cast by the ancient lost-wax process, these powerful works unite a centuries-old tradition of exquisite craftsmanship with a contemporary approach to form and surface. The geometric shapes that Pomodoro favors - spheres, columns, cubes, and disks - are slashed PDF, pierced, and stamped with distinctive patterns that suggest the passage of time and also hint at the tribulations of modern society. This handsome volume - designed by the internationally renowned designer Massimo Vignelli - vividly communicates the impact of Pomodoro's art. Sam Hunter, a prominent authority on twentieth-century art and a longtime friend of the artist, has written an incisive essay based on a series of revealing conversations with him.
