Carlo Moretti is a sculptor and painter who mostly works with wood, trying not to corrupt/distort/denaturalize the raw material. The surface remains therefore raw, rough, painted with an extremely simple/basic palette aiming at applying the two aesthetic principles governing Haiku poetry namely Wabi (simplicity, freshness or quietness) and Yugen (deep and mysterious).
As for Japanese poetry giving the titles to sculptures, subjects are taken from natural world: simple objects, but with multiple meanings. The result is an open composition, a non verbal, yet not less interesting, haiku zen.
Carlo Moretti was born in Suzzara (Mantova) Italy, on 18 October 1963
He has had over 200 one-man and collective exhibition.
