La Visita by Mocenni at The Sculpture Ranch


Mocenni worked around the clock racing against time to complete a sculpture during his stay at the Benini Foundation and Sculpture Ranch the second week in November. Upon his arrival, Benini took Mocenni to Lampasas to  acquire thick cedar boards.  Working with the dimensions of the three pieces he selected, that evening Mocenni completed his drawings and began work, shaping, sawing, filing and sanding the pieces. Each day he returned to the boards, stopping only for meals and a special lecture presentation. Soon the workshop was layered with a fine cedar dust and still he continued. Each groove, each angle received his focused attention. A contrasting finish was selected to set off the dynamism of the three pieces with a final wax polish to heighten the beauty of the grains.  Finally, this cedar from Texas, now a sculpture,  will be secured in a vertical position and stand in testimonial to the determination and creative drive of a 69-year old maestro from Milano....
