Dalton Ghetti – srce olovke – HeArt of the pencil

Često razmišljam o umetnosti, uopšte o stvaranju, o tome šta ljudi misle o svome radu, ma kakav on bio….na sreću, uvek postoje pravi, u malom broju – ali postoje. Pre nekoliko dana dobila sam čarobne fotografije koje prikazuju autorski rad čoveka koji se zove Dalton Ghetti.  Dalton živi u gradu Bridžportu, državi Konektikat koja je u Americi, inače je poreklom iz Brazila. Po zanimanju Dalton je stolar, koji ima 49 godina a bavi se rezbarenjem minijaturnih skulptura već 25 godina. Još kao dete bavio se rezbarenjem drveta, sapuna i krede, dok nije došao do toga da je grafit, odnosno srce grafitne olovke ono od čega će praviti ova predivna dela. Za svoj rad nikada nije koristio lupu, a jedini alat koji koristi su šivaća igla, nož za vajanje, žilet i stolarska olovka br.2. Ghettiju su često potrebne godine da bi završio odredjeni komad, konkretno za fotografiju na kojoj su prikazane olovčice sa slovima alfabeta na svom grafitnom vrhu trebalo mu je  dve i po godine. Takodje, Dalton poseduje preko 100 skulptura koje su se polomile pri kraju rada i  koje zove “Grobna zbirka” a koje čuva za uspomenu uramljene u stiroporu.  Olovke od kojih pravi skulpture nikada ne kupuje, nego koristi one koje pronadje na ulici ili one koje dobije od prijatelja. Ghetti je napravio oko 100 rezbarija skulptura, a trenutno radi na epskom komadu inspiran napadom na Svetski trgovinski Centar 11.septembra. Kada se to dogodilo, Dalton se nalazio blizu samog centra i posmatrao je sam napad i tragediju i to ga je toliko potreslo da je legao na zemlju u parku i plakao ceo dan. Odlučio je da kao spomen na taj dogadjaj napravi skulpturu rezbariju od grafitnog srca olovke koji će predstavljati jednu veliku suzu kada se bude posmatrala izdaleka. A kako joj se bude prilazilo sve će se više uočavati da je velika suza skulptura zapravo sačinjena od oko 3000 malih suza, koliko je otprilike stradalo ljudi tog strašnog dana. Od 2002 godine Dalton pravi po jednu suzu svaki dan, a da bi napravio svih 3000 trebaće mu oko deset godina i on kaže kako misli da to vredi tolikog truda. Moj duboki naklon ovom geniju! Ovo jeste umetnost, šta Vi mislite?



I often think about art, creation in general and about what people think about what they create, whatever they create .. fortunately, there are some chosen few, just few but it’s enough. Few days ago I received some marvelous photos of some handwork by a man called Dalton Ghetti. He lives in Bridgeport, Connecticut in USA but he’s originally from Brasil. By vocation, he is carpenter but this 49 year old man is a true artist that spent last 25 years creating miniature carvings. Since his childhood he used to carve wood, soap and limestone until he finally decided that graphite is going to be material of his choice, to be precise, the core of the carpenters graphite pen. Dalton never uses magnifying glass and actually, only tool he use while making this marvelous pieces of art is comprised of sewing needle, modeling knife, razor blade and carpenters pen #2. To finish a single piece Dalton often spend years. For example, the carvings on photo with letters of alphabet took two and a half years. It is worth to mention that there’s over 100 sculptures that broke before they were finished and this collection Dalton calls “the cemetery collection” and he carefully store them encased in styrofoam. He never purchase pens he use to make sculptures, but use only ones he find or receive as gift from friends. This great artist created around 100 carvings and at the moment he is working on an epic piece inspired by September 11th, the attack on the WTC. When that happened, Dalton was near the WTC and he watched the tragedy take place. He was shook so much that he iled on the ground in the park and cried whole day. He decided to commemorate that day by making a carving from a graphite pen core that will, looked from far look like a big tear but when looked up close one would see it is made of 3000 small tears (number close to how many people was hurt on that terrible day). He’s making one tear ever day since 2002 and he things it will take approximately 10 years to finish and he believes it is worth the effort. I bow to his gratenes! This is true art. What do you think?
