The works of Nicola Alessandrini
Currently based in Macerata, Italy, artist Nicola Alessandrini brings hybrid creatures to life by juxtaposing the human body with animal elements.
Suffering is presented through its most dramatic state – the cry of a child, death becomes an inevitable experience of human life, absurd dialogues lacking any possibility of communication devour the subjects, and beauty no longer manifests itself in man.
The works introduce a totally different, torturing reality, one that we usually hide from and would rather pretend not to see, feel or filter through our thoughts.
