The art of Antonio Leone

  




  By Anna Maria Rizzato
 
Antonio Leone's art comes from the Greek world.
He follows the fundamental rules settled by Policleto for the harmonious proportions and look at the Hellenic sculptures, for their extreme dynamism in the bodies postures and the astonishing realism of facial’s expression.
However Master Leone is a son of his time and in the past forty years he had kept on growing, creating his own identity on his profession.
His growth follows the sculpture’s developments in the medieval and Romanesque period and the influence of the latter shows in his altar-frontals and high-relieves.
In his journey across centuries, he almost goes beyond Renaissance to reach quickly Baroque, in accordance with his disposition.
His sculpture is at the same time strong, visceral and emphatic.
In the Priolo’s church , as a matter of fact, the bas-relieves are strong, spiritual figures, visceral at times, speaking to a group of faithful people and exclusively in a decorative language.
His work feed on Neoclassicism and look at Canova to learn how to give the beauty of the Greek statues to his own work, with a touch of epidermic sensuality and grace. 
On his journey across the centuries the self-taught Master "discovers" the meaning of plasticity. The sculpture of Master Antonio Leone is the continuous search of a breath of life to infuse into the cold marble, creating still figures ready to live.
To reach gracefulness, he follows the footsteps of the great Michelangelo, by rough-casting the marble, drawing his own dream of an image.
