Andrea Fogli was born in Rome in 1959. His work is represented in important public collections as for example at the MARTA in Herford, the Wilhelm Lehmbruck Museum in Duisburg, the Galleria d’Arte Moderna di Bologna, the MARCO in Rome, the Galleria Civica in Modena, etc.
Fogli creates in his drawings a black-and-white world full of imagination, they are blurred, impenetrable and can hardly be dissolved. Sometimes the figures are clear signs, and then they are diffuse again like appearances that appear and vanish again. His work is filled with allegories, symbols and emblems, and there is a proximity to the European symbolism. Also Foglis bronze sculptures, which show a very careful, partly smooth or porous surface,have several meanings and a particularly aesthetic attraction. His literary production, poetic diaries, document Fogli's inventiveness and forme the starting point for the elaboration in form of drawings and bronze sculptures.
