Ivanno Macci is a Colombian–Italo–Canadian self-made sculptor with a rare and diverse background.
His sculptures consist of artwork created from rare wood pieces discovered in the northern cold water of the Pacific Ocean; where the sculptor, with a “fishing” technique, a wood cleaning and drying procedure and accurate woodcuts, creates unique artwork that takes you to a sensorial and harmonial experience.
His series represents a singular and inventive approach to modern and contemporary art where his artwork comes from combining nature, mechanical tools, and modern technology.
His artwork reveals and displays the relationship among mind, hands, and tools and the interaction between nature and human imagination. In his work you can see the sculptor’s combination of his left and right side of his brain where the logical and creative brain sides mix to create each sculpture.
All sculptures are Eco-friendly, where the wood materials are taken from the ocean waters and marble and other materials from recycled sources.
Due to the rare and unique kind of wood that he uses in his artwork, every sculpture has its own Certificate of Origin, which includes: date, time and location where the wood was caught; wood type, origin and age; and a microscope picture of the wood that helps to identify it.
Macci’s sculptures reflect a state of harmony and symmetry among all its components; where the sculptor reveals the “unseen” from nature, which is his great passion!!!
