Sicilian sculptor Giuseppe Agnello gives new meaning to the expression “one with nature.” His surreal sculptures of bodies with roots, branches, or tree trunks emanating from heads, feet, or chests, are at once intriguing and disturbing. Working in plaster, polyester resin, clay and bronze, the Palermo-based artist plays with the idea of metamorphosis, much of the time incorporating tree-like morphing, though not limiting himself to vegetation, as in the case of his Corpi nuvolosi (Cloudy Bodies) or his zipped up bodies in Anima e corpo (Body and Soul.)

Agnello currently has an exhibit of 40 works titled Memories: Lateral and Oblique Views at the Carlos V Tower in Porto Empedocle, Sicily through the end of the year.
