Nature small and big forms of the vegetal and human world provides the inspiration for Michele Golia’s work. It is characterized by constant and often minimalist movement, details that escape our observation during everyday life.
I imagine humanity as if comprised of layers. Some layers are thicker, some more modest, all piled from the past to future. This sculpture is but a segment of this image. It starts from within the earth holding our ancestors’ layers within.
This sculpture represents the past and the future. As it ascends, the form becomes more refined, relating to the past being unfinished and rough, the future, (as we hope in our minds) is more perfect. We wish to make it better.
