Acores - One Guitars Collection

Brand New

Description & Specs

Adriano’s ONE guitar is a stunning piece of extraordinary craftsmanship. The loving care and attention he dedicates to his carving is apparent in all the fine details. Smooth surfaces interlace with cruder corners, choppy edges, which then are soothed into grooves and softly layered folds. His work has developed from an early, very organic shaping to now using a very complex form language.                                          

Though perhaps not blatantly visible Adriano’s guitar is a manifestation of his connection to nature, the emotions evoked by the upheaval his life went through during the pandemic and the strong friendships he has within the group. Adriano’s ONE guitar exudes calm. Knowing Adriano’s capacity for great passion and exuberance it is almost surprising to see it harnessed and channeled into an almost regal stillness.
 
On closer look deep set pattern emerge in the color, which change depending on the light. Unusual for his work is that he embedded  wood pieces into the guitar body. This has been inspired by the works of artist Gustav Klimt and Michael’s habit of integrating wood leftovers -- a pattern becomes visible on closer look. Adriano describes his experience of being part of Po3 as something that grounded him in this very difficult past year, that allowed him to push thinking aside in favor of just doing. He told us that he is taking more and more time for his carvings, to allow things to grow and develop harmoniously and authentically. That is also very visible in his work, one can almost feel the patience and focus when looking at his ONE guitar.
 
Adriano, why only one guitar?

"It makes a lot of sense as continuation from 2020— each of us contributed a number of guitars to form ‘The Red Collection’. Now I sculpt thinking about the others, which gives me more focus and it is special because of that. I like this direction — it let me do what I needed doing and suddenly IT was there!

"My One Guitars incorporates a lot of Michael’s influence but also aspects of Uli’s. We had planned on showcasing the collection in Vienna, but COVID has made that impossible. Still, the inspiration was there. Michael mentioned the Wotruba Church as something he sees relating to my style, which influenced my sculpting. And once the guitar was done I realized how much of Gustav Klimt’s style inspired me as well.

"My carving always also expresses my relationship to nature. ’One’ brought it all to a point, to create something special and really unique using my style. It has almost been like a step in a developing process from 2020. The idea for the outline of this guitar was effortlessly born at NAMM 2020. Earlier this year I built a guitar thinking it might be the one for the collection, but it turned out that the one I built later after many Zoom conversations and phone calls incorporated so much more of these aspects that it was clearly the ‘ONE’… "
