May 1 - 31, 2016
Try not to smile as we take you on a month long joyride through the mental menagerie of revered ÆRENA sculptor Giuseppe Palumbo, at Mia Musa.
From the whimsical to the serious to the sublime, Palumbo's bronze creations instantly evoke an emotional response, causing us to either laugh out loud or revert into quiet contemplation.
Inspired by the great sculptors of his Italian heritage in ancient Rome, Palumbo uses age-old casting techniques to create distinctive sculptures with his own unique twist. Many of Palumbo's series cover a broad spectrum of the human condition in a way that features his wry and thoughtful humor. He offers subtle hints to slow down and appreciate the little things, and to remain balanced and brilliant. In contrast, Palumbo also offers us laughter in the form of anthropomorphic bulls, pigs, and sheep, whose comical countenances remain with us forever.
Contact your Art Consultant today to acquire or to obtain more details or a full collections list. Visit us at all of our locations throughout the month of May, including our newest gallery and showroom located at 6795 Washington Street in Yountville.
Palumbo's works have been exhibited and are part of many public and private collections including: The Loveland Sculpture Invitational, SoFA Sculpture Show, Santa Fe, NM, Art Expo, NY, San Francisco ArtMkt, San Francisco, and are part of Queen Raina of Jordan's private collection.
