About the Artists

1938 Rome, Italy

Franco Ciuti was born in Rome on July 20, 1938. He attended the Art Institute having as teachers Pericle Fazzini and Leoncillo. The influence of Leoncillo has marked his first works exhibited at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome in 1961, the Third National Exhibition of Youth Art.
A series of collective exhibitions followed in Termoli and Avezzano, where he was in the company of artists such as Pascali and Kounellis. His first major solo exhibition at the Galleria Lo Scorpio in Rome in 1964. Years of intense work followed, in which the artist moved away from the influences of his first masters, in search of his own personal poetics and not involved in the conceptualist currents of the moment.

His interest is addressed to the organicity of the matter, especially to the terracotta.

In 1975 he exhibited at the Gallery I Due Mondi large terracottas and bronzes, which are the result of his research of the previous years. The exhibition was then transferred to Milan at the Ada Zunino Gallery and later to the Argentario Gallery of Trento and the Biennale of Campione d'Italia.
The exhibitions of these years (1975-1977) were presented by critics: Cesare Vivaldi, Dario Micacchi, Vito Apuleo and others. The primary concept of his art, already specified in his works, since the '70s, now becomes a constant matter, with always renewed invention. It is a comparison, or rather, the search for a comparison between organic form and essential geometry, including the square and the circle, going beyond, even the hard and soft, the edge and the fold.
In November 1985 he exhibited at Palazzo Barberini in Rome and in 1986 he was invited to exhibit at the Institute of Culture in San Francisco, under the patronage of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Will remain in the United States with a series of exhibitions in private galleries and public museums. Among them are: Carnegie Art Museum in Oxnard - Los Angeles (1988), Cornejo Valley Museum in Thousend Oaks California (1989), Hackman Gallery in Palm Springs California (1981), Lodi Art Gallery in Pasadena (1993).
Back in Italy he exhibited a solo exhibition at the Cultural Association Project in Rome (1995) presented by Arcangelo Izzo. In the same year he had a solo exhibition at the Nader Gallery in Santo Domingo.
In 1996 he exhibited a series of large bronzes at the Gallery Framart Studio in Naples. In the same year the Gallery Luckman Fine art of Los Angeles organizes a great personal mostyra of his bronzes with activity of conferences and seminars.
In 1999 he exhibited at the Varart Gallery of Florence in the solo exhibition: Variances and Volutes in the Circles of the Discobolus, presented by Tommaso Trini.
His last works of the '90s can be defined as "imponderable architectures" in which the material weight tends to the state of lightness or levitation.
