Buy Croce Taravella’s artworks on Artsy
Croce Taravella is the most important Sicilian artist of the last half century. Between 1982 and 1985 he came into contact with Joseph Beuys, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Maurizio Cattelan. He began to develop a unique experimental style using concrete, oil paints and resins, which anticipates his major Land Art installations with concrete, iron, wood and rag-impregnated scrap, made in the mountains of the Sicilian hinterland.
“Cities sway between true and false, flesh and spirit, noise and silence. They are powerful and liquid at the same time, maintaining a certain structure but struggling to survive.”
Croce has exhibited at the 51st Venice Biennale and at the 10th and 11th Venice Architecture Biennale. In 2014 the Sant’Elia Foundation in Palermo organized his first retrospective. His works are in the collections of the Guttuso Museum in Bagheria and of the Pinacoteca in Marsala.
