The artworks released by Gardeco Objects in collaboration with various artists are always inspiring and continue to fascinate. Today, we present you two new limited edition works by Italian sculptor Armando Di Nunzio.
Our partner Gardeco Objects has a clear goal: to create affordable works of art for a wider audience. The Belgian company offers handmade pieces and thus aims to introduce talented artists to a wider audience. For each collection, this art publisher collaborates with a different creative artist, each specialising in a specific material. The pieces are sold worldwide in exclusive shops, design stores, museum shops, art galleries, and through architects and interior designers. Recently, Gardeco Objects collaborated with Italian artist Armando Di Nunzio. The sculptor is from Lettomanoppello, which is located in the Abruzzo region and is also called the City of White Stone. The place is known for its long tradition of stone carving. A native of the town and the child of artisans, he was destined to become a sculptor. He selects the material for his works himself in the quarries of his hometown, then turns it into sculptures with an eye for detail. Armando Di Nunzio's favourite material is white maiella stone, and in his designs he always tries to translate the mystical energy of the Maiella Mountains.
A sculpture with a fossil that tells about the past
For Gardeco Objects, the Italian artist designed two limited edition bronze works: 'Noi due al quadrato' (Italian for ‘us two multiplied') and 'Verso l'alto' ('upward'). 'Noi due al quadrato' is an inspiring sculpture representing two imperfect individuals coming together and forming a unit. Very interestingly, the sculpture contains a fossil. This was already visible in the stone and the artist decided not to remove it. It emphasises the slow and inexorable work of Mother Nature, with whom he is in constant dialogue. In this way, he tells about the past. The second work, Verso l'alto, represents a search for good and evil. It combines feminine and masculine elements and radiates strength and vulnerability at the same time. This new collaboration is another absolute hit. These two beautiful, elegant sculptures continue to surprise from every angle and will be able to take any interior to the next level.
