In his long research as an artist and architect Giuseppe Guanci worked around an idea considered unrepresentable in the West: the void. A labyrinthine void wrapped in copper wire sculptures - sometimes in brass, silver or willow, others in wire mesh - which translate the dense, dense texture of the design into three-dimensional shapes.
In these works, a patient and very attentive gestural rituality is immediately visible, which poetically modulates the very thin copper wire in figures that present themselves now as human figures, now as animals or fruit. An uninterrupted dialogue between inside and outside that makes these unprecedented works open, transparent and legible in infinite ways and that offer themselves in constant mutation, for example, by virtue of the type of light that passes through them and the observer's point of view. .
Giuseppe Guanci at the age of 11 attended the "Leonardo da Vinci" School of Arts and Crafts in Prato and in 1978 he graduated from the Art School of Florence.
In 1981, following participation in various group exhibitions, he held his first personal exhibition of watercolors and drawings at the Centro Studi Arti Visive in Prato.
In the mid-eighties he began the study of three-dimensional works which, after a decade, thanks also to the meeting with some Florentine designers belonging to the "Bolidista" movement, gives a renewed vitality to his artistic career which will lead, in 1994, into a personal exhibition in Murlo castle (SI), which will be followed by another important exhibition in the Palazzo Pretorio di Prato.
In 2002 he graduated in Architecture in Florence, also starting to deal with design, temporarily abandoning his artistic activity, then resumed in 2009 with the first work of the new series "Tessoforme", exhibited at ART'O - Rome - EUR - Palazzo dei Congresses.
