"One of the great sculptors of the 20th century" Online Gallery

"...the symbolism and imagery Villa has invented is personal and independent of visual reality. Humor, the sensual, aggression and the serious are various emotions experienced when viewing Villa's sculptures. His work exudes a powerful inner energy. "

For almost forty years, Villa has worked mainly in steel, interspersed with short periods of modeling for bronze. In this recent series of steel sculptures, he shows his consummate mastery of the medium, creating powerful, evocative works that evoke the human figure at times. The full richness of a formal language that he has built up over many decades, comes into play: seemingly mechanical forms, softer curves derived from modeled shapes, the solidity suggested by solid cast bronzes.

Each work has been sensitively finished in subtle color shades, recalling the patina formed on rusted steel.

The main composition of his oeuvre has been the vertical construction, based on the standing figure; previous series exploring the reclining figure, and the resultant "War Machines", gave rise to these dynamic horizontal pieces.
