Gilberto Zorio (b. 1944) is a contemporary Italian artist known for his sculptures of five-sided stars. Originally trained in painting, he eventually shifted to sculpture, creating works which reveal his fascination for the processes involved in alchemy and the manifestations of energy. Zorio sees his works as “being energy itself,” always living, still in progress, or meant for the future.
