In 1973, a printmaking studio in Venice – Centro Internazionale Della Grafica Venezia – commissioned nineteen artists to respond to Venice. The portfolio, titled Venice Yesterday Today Tomorrow, brings together senior Italian artists. Disparate in style and philosophy, these works present a portal into the lineage, tensions and desires of Venice, once the heart of Western art.

In his work, Sergio Sarri explores the connections between man and machine. He collages human and mechanical elements into dark, often erotic fantasies that recall 1920s cinema, in particular Fritz Lang’s ‘Metropolis’. In ‘Untitled (Equestrian Graphic)’, Sarri turns these interests to a Venetian horse. Monument devolves to cyborg in a candy-coloured palette – surrealism fuses with futurism and pop art.

As well as his fine art practice, Sarri published comics. He participated in the 1972 Venice Biennale, the year before this work was published. For collectors of twentieth century art, Sarri is an exhilarating find.
