parallel laboratories






Antonello Cosseddu was born in 1960 in Nuoro (Sardinia)
He attended the F. Ciusa State Institute of Art, driven by a passion for everything that expresses color, shape and artistic sense. He made his debut with painting, soon establishing a direct comparison with the surrounding reality and with the themes of the 80s, the period of his training.
Subsequently, as if to fill his artistic sense which was unable to fully express itself in pictorial art, he took up the challenge with the plastic, concrete and living form that only sculpture was able to give him.
He begins by sculpting the stone, establishing a lively relationship with the material, attracted by the charm that the stone emanates, developing the figurative, which he soon transforms into essential research of forms. A quarry man, he knows the weights and textures of stone, marble and basalt, their vulnerability and the effort that each requires to be shaped by the artist, establishing a relationship almost like two old friends.
Sculpture allows and prompts the artist to experiment, research and start using different materials: treated iron, string, canvas, rags, plastic, fusions and wood, everything is good for stimulating creativity.
