Francesco Antonio Caporale’s thirty-year long journey of experimentation and research is the generative dimension of his artistic syntax. In line with the linguistic evolution of his practice, the works in this volume – linked by chains of symbolic correlations – represent a creative exploration of the theme of bread. Through sculptures, paintings and installations, the artist weaves together a special narrative that retraces chosen fragments of the history of this precious food, the history of man and that of the artist himself. Starting from the material dimension of bread, Caporale journeys towards its fundamental spiritual dimension. As curator Teodolinda Coltellaro explains, ‘bread is more properly the yeast of life, the bread of life. This is an element of union between the earth and the sky, matter and spirit’.
