Paolo Grassino

 

The Artist

Paolo Grassino was born in Turin in 1967, where he lives and works.
His work offers a reflection on the drift of current society, suspended on the fence between natural and artificial, between insecurity and mutation. Above all, his work is a search that recovers the full meaning of the craft. Working with synthetic rubber, wood, wax and polystyrene, but also with more advanced techniques like fusing aluminum and cement castings, Grassino brings his sculptures to another level of spectacularity.
Recent solo exhibitions include: Maree – Eduardo Secci Gallery, Relais Santa Croce, Florence (2018); Paolo Grassino and Luigi Mainolfi, Casa Fiat de Cultura, Belo Horizonte, curated by Alessandro Demma (2017); Analgesia, Museum of Contemporary Art, Castello di Rivara, Turin (2016); Magazzinoscuro, MAC | Museo d'Arte Contemporanea, Lissone, Milan (2015); Ciò che resta, Eduardo Secci Contemporary, Florence (2014); Percorso in tre atti, Museo Pecci, Milan (2013); La oscuridad en la luz, IIC|Istituto Italiano di Cultura, Palacio de Abrantes, Madrid (2013); Atmosphere, Paolo Grassino and Pierluigi Pusole, Fondazione 107, Turin (2012); 2000… 201, Castello di Rivalta, Turin (2010); Contaminazioni, Pinacoteca Albertina, Turin (2010).
