About the work
Alessandro Pessoli
Italian, b. 1963
Follow

In painting, drawing, collage, and sculpture, Alessandro Pessoli has built a distinctive cast of characters that are at once heroic, tragic, earnest, and comic. Pessoli alludes to religious symbols—crucifixes and familiar classical arrangements like the nativity or annunciation—mixed with sexual symbols to create enigmatic narratives. With titles like The Musician (2010) and The Blue Bitch (2010), Pessoli’s small-scale, highly abstracted ceramics include familiar objects like a candle, a window, or a face, realizing many of Pessoli’s formal concerns three-dimensionally.
