Davide Rivalta's sculptures focus on the artist's interest in the relationship between the work or art and the environment. Produced in a scale of 1:1, as in the case of the Indian Rhinoceros, his animals have a strong physical presence and are extraordinarily lifelike. The realistic aspect of his work, however, appears to clash with the way he treats the fibreglass surfaces. These surfaces interact with the natural light falling on them and capture our attention, which is drawn not to the mere depiction in itself but to the expressive effect of the link between the work of art and the environment.
