This is an "Epifragma (Epiphragm)" artwork.
A lid, a shell with an imaginary creature that lives inside it.
This is a piece from the "Metamorfosi del volo (Metamorphosis of flight)" series: creatures that wern't born to fly, transform their body into an asymmetrical wing. They will never be able to fly, but that doesn't matter because sometimes there is no difference between falling and flying.

Giulio Centurelli was born in 1978 in Bergamo (Italy), where he lives and works.
Self-taught artist, he began his artistic journey from poetry and photography, driven by a profound inner research on existence and on the complicated relationship between himself and society. Always in search of an expressive method that completes it, he dedicates himself to painting with “Ferite (Wounds)” and subsequently to iron with “Ruggine (Rust)”, the spontaneous bearer of human existence, a theme to which the artist is strongly linked. This concept has been extended and elevated by today's “Epifragma (Epiphragm)” experimentation.
“I have always felt the need to leave a trace of my thoughts, as if this could free me from that restlessness that at the same time suffocates and fascinates me. Human existence is the theme to which I am strongly linked and that I try to tell through the works. Today I entrust the feeling of existence to the “Epifragma” works.
Epiphragm is the attempt to tell a form of life.
These are latent and imaginary existences closed in their own solitude, sheltered from the world. Epifragma is a lid, a shell that holds life. The holes act as windows and allow you to know the work as if it were a human being. In this sense, therefore, the works should not be understood but known, discovered, in order to weave a feeling with them. Each work tells a personal story. Unique, like the existence of human beings.
These are the main aspects that characterize my art: Introspection. Depth. Interiority. Reflection. Melancholy. Intimacy. Asymmetry. Apparent imbalance. Cuts. Ties. Shortcomings.
The works appear suspended as if to establish a dialogue with the observer, but they never explicitly declare their message, suggesting what they think or feel only if you really listen. They are ambiguous, complicated in their simplicity and require a profound approach to invade their intimacy.
They live in limbo, veiled by a state of melancholy, even when apparently they manifest the opposite.
They are children of a condition, of a feeling, of a state of mind. And they whisper about this."
