Out of stock
Born in Austrian Vorarlberg in 1960, Mario Dalpra enrolled in Arnulf Rainer’s master class at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna in 1982. The versatile artist initially worked as a painter, participated in performances and created installations. Travelling as an integral part of his life concept lead him to many countries in Europe, but also to Morocco, Australia, Brazil, Indonesia, India and Thailand.
Dalpra himself states in an interview that his many journeys to Asian countries, especially to Bali, have had a strong impact on his work.* This influence can be well traced in the sculpture “Powerful Movement”. It is reminiscent of a many-armed Indian deity but can also be interpreted as a study of dance movements cast in form.
In addition to the fluid organic forms of the sculpture, the colorfully patinated surface of this unique piece is highly fascinating.
