A double mooring, in mythology and in everyday life, makes the sculptor Eugen Petri one of the most inventive contemporary artists. His works, of a climactic monumentality, regardless of their sizes, created from conventional materials, among which stone seems to prevail, send equally to a cynical and ironic remark on the nowadays human condition, but at the same time they suggest that man has the chance of ascension into a higher dimension.
Spirals, steps, contorted shapes in a dialogue with precisely articulated forms, horizontals in dialogue with verticals, a dynamism tempered by the massiveness of some dense compositions, contribute to the birth of an original universe, in continuous expansion.
The artist carves elaborately, accentuates the forms which he wishes to emphasize, treats the surfaces meticulously and so he produces artworks that obtrude the space and the eyesight as plastic creations full of force and bearing an explicit message.
