mauro corda

  • Biography
Mauro Corda is a French sculptor of Italian origin, born in 1960. As a sculptor, he is very sensitive to color. In addition to patinas, he also uses chrome, silver, gilding and painting on his bronzes. From there he also drifted to other materials than bronze, such as aluminum and iron. He spends a lot of time in Pietrasanta, Italy, where he works with marble and terracotta. Mauro Corda is thus a true magician who kneads the material to his will, whatever it is, and bends it to his will.

The central theme of Maura Corda's work is always the same: the representation of the individual in all his roles, environments and situations. The expressive power of the sculptor is too powerful to be limited to one material. Thus, he will remake the bronze bust of an Asian girl in ceramic, because it will allow him to bring out aspects of her essence that would otherwise remain hidden in bronze. There is something delicate about white marble, while a male bust in aluminum exudes an almost divine glow.

"No preconceived notions or moral prejudices, no repugnance or modesty can govern beauty. The human being fascinates me, he is everywhere, in the form that God or Nature has given him, gestation as well as agony. How to express it?

Whether it is the acid of youth, the pulp of maturity, the exhaustion of senescence, the skeleton, always, is essential.

It is the gallows of the sculpture, giving the volume that underlies life...". Mauro Corda.
