ARTIST STATEMENT​
 

Contemporary images that provide access to an archetypal dimension of reality, and focus on the evocative capacity of sculpture. Ceramic figures serve as ironic commentaries on the excesses and obsessions of global society and the enormous influence that material has on the individual. The statues express the condensation of a visual language contaminated by surrealist solutions, pop proliferations, and archaic symbolism. What Porelli finds seductive about ceramics is that, while expressing modern concepts, he can maintain contact with the technique's archaic roots, amalgamating historical memory and present amnesia.
