Alex Pinna

Alex Pinna's sculptures, characterized by thin bodies and long legs, certainly derive from Giacometti's poetics, though unburdened from their gloomy gravitas and gifted with a melancholy smile and a naïve and disenchanted glance upon reality.  The artist, deeply in love with comics and any language which can easily reach people's heart, manages to convey emotions, feelings and mental features without availing himself of facial expressions (his characters' faces are composed by few traits: forehead and nose), but only of the thoughtful bending of a spine or the imbalanced tilting of a body, communicating a sensation of existential instability.
