FILO ON THE MOVE by Judd Tully

Lorenzo pulls a spiky coil of Filo out of his battered valise. “This is my own cultural DNA” declare the artist. The Filo, or string, is hand coated with squirts of acrylic paint thickly layered in primary shades of blue, yellow and red, resembling an extraterrestrial form of rosary beads. Since 1977, Pezzatini, a Florentine by birth, has incorporated the indispensable string into his ethereal installations, primarily in United States and Italy.

In the summer 1986, vintner and patron , Antonio Terni, invited Pezzatini to create an installation at his Le Terrazze vineyards outside Ancona (the port city perched on the Adriatic sea). Pezzatini lived on the estate for a month, painting metaphorically charged tryptic in a 150 years old granary building. During this intensive period of work, the artist discovered the owner’s antique carriage that hung its dusty splendor from the exposed rafters. He strung the Filo from the carriage down to a large, two handled copper pot placed strategically in the center of the floor. The blackened pot was filled with freshley gathered grain from the nearby fields. The resulting conception, the merging of the male and the female elements sprung a wanderfully bachanalian metaphor.

At the time of our interview, the artist was fiddling with a mandala-like arrangement of cookie-cutter shapes, a kind of miniature menagerie, on the wall of his sublet studio in the New York’s Lower East Side. His obsession with the pliable material the he unearthed in a hobby store – the trade name is Friendly Plastic – is yet an other textured layer of his fully evolved vocabulary of form. Stepping singerly between the arc-shaped rows of mini-sculpted wildlife and acquatic forms, the artist pointed to the subtle raking of the wall piece and said with triumphant resolve, “I’m thinking of foliage and gravity”. Outside the rafting studio window, a chill wind blow.
