BUTTO SATURNO
Saturno Buttò (Portogruaro 1957) lives and works in Bibione. In 1971 he enrolled at art school in Venice and later at the Academy of Fine Arts, majoring in painting course in 1980. He started his show career in 1993, the year is also published his first monograph, titled "Portraits from Saturn: 1989-1992”. Since then there are numerous personal exhibitions in Italy and in the United States (New York and Los Angeles), in addition to the two-volume "Works 1993-1999" and the recent "Martyrologium" (2007).
The work is characterized by Saturno threw a personal interpretation of sacred formal European technical expertise and impeccable, reminiscent of the great masters of our tradition of painting. Rituals figured, tableaux vivants, neo-Gothic altar pieces are masterful creations with which the artist explores the fascinating mysteries has always been a "dark religion": the body's innate sensuality and his deep spirituality. In the ongoing conflict between eroticism and pain, ecstasy and transgression, the rich paintings on wood and threw dissect the uncompromising vision of western religious iconography contradictory to the body, first exhibited as an object of worship, the other denied in its value of pure erotic beauty. The result is a fascinating tension that enhances primarily the human figure, where in his work it has always been at the center of the scene.
