Commedia COLLECTION

The commedia collection by balzano is a subtle and ingenious exploration of the artist’s signature interest in the interplay between the classical and the contemporary. Paying homage to greco-roman antiquity, the collection is stark, sleek, and boldly geometric. Named for and Recalling the masks of the italian theatrical practice of commedia dell’arte, each work invites us to imbue it with our own interpretation

Like the famous masks, these works are vessels that allow reflection on the drama and comedy of everyday life. Dark and elegiac, the commedia collection is also playful, toying with the viewer’s sense of perspective and dimensionality, raising questions about reality, pretense, and the construction of meaning. Each work is a stage for the viewer to fill with expressivity and vivacity

Meticulously crafted in sumptuous black oak by fine artisans in france, each work in the collection is in a strictly limited edition of twelve and is signed by the artist. With its singular vision and flawless execution, the commedia collection is a bravura display of balzano’s ability to interpret history with both intellect and emotion to bespeak something ineffable about contemporary life
