“His first works, compact and conventional, stayed tied to the elements of the Earth, whereas the series which follow doe not cease to acquire expressiveness and finesse. These astonishing works, with their dashed bodies and the determined lack of volume, invite the viewer to mentally reconstitute its limits. Thus, Van Gogh still leaves, his suitcase in hand, towards the Provencal countryside, but it is in a quasi-abstract lightness, open to the elements. It is not our destiny that Bruno Catalano persuades us to see and to meditate on? Because through his statuary, he re-enacts the adventure of the human species, always between two riverbanks, repelling all borders.”
(Bruno Catalano, Galerie Bartoux)

It's impressive but I prefer whole bodies...
