Posted by darkartandcraft Admin on

Contemporary Italian Artist Livio Scarpella's ceramic "Ghost" sculptures live in peace and eternal anguish.

Scarpella's ceramic sculpture series “Ghost Underground,” are beautiful veiled faces with light and dark quartz crystals embedded within them. These works were influenced by the famous sculptures (The Veiled Christ is a masterpiece by Giuseppe Sanmartino completed in 1753) that lay in the Cappella Sansevero, a chapel in Naples, Italy. In this modern presentation, each sculpted face takes its own meaning paired with the color and permanence of the crystals. Scarpella was born in Ghedi, Italy and currently resides and works in Brescia, Italy. Please view some of the series below and the original inspiration.
