Paladino belonged to the 'Transavanguardia' movement (beyond the avant-garde) during the 1970's. This group of Italian artists worked in the Neo-Expressionist style, returning to traditional and recognizable subjects in sculpture and painting. History, mythology and the human form were central concerns. 'Sud II' is a monumental bronze casting which captures the essence of world religion, mask making as well as ancient and classical mythic themes.
