The series Eros by Bruno Cattani invites us to reconsider, with new eyes and perception, themes such as desire and pathos, understood as that feeling capable to create an intense feeling and a total aesthetic and emotional involvement.
Eros gathers many years of passionate investigations and fascinating journeys into the universe of sculpture, in which the author has been able to intercept and shape those dark and hidden aspects of desire, which are finally revealed, thanks to a gaze capable of capturing instincts and impulses, no longer confined to the fixed and definitive forged material, but now belonging to reality, in the sphere of emotion, because they have become unmistakably evident, in figures of strong visual impact, like vigorous bodies, endowed with profound vitality.
