  • About the Artist
  • Curriculum Vitae

Marco Ferri was born in 1968 in Viterbo. He lives and works in Tarquinia. Although he continues to be an accomplished painter, at his heart Ferri is a sculptor. His love for sculpture was, and remains, entirely designed to appear lightweight. This Tarquiniense artist introduces a meaning of poetry and levity into his work. The seemingly weightlessness in his sculpture, however, is associated with a good aptitude for fun, as evidenced by the development of fanciful machines. When Ferri creates his sculptures, he employs the use of found objects – the most basic wire and metal objects. He then combines elements of wood and bits of painted canvas. The result often times feels basic. Ferri also attempts to give his sculptures the possibility of movement. His miniature mobile carts on wheels (wagons), or curious machines operated by hand cranks, are created to be devoid of a concrete outcome or functional logic.
