MASSIMO ANGEI. IL SOFFIO DELL'ANIMA

 
25th November - 30th December 2012
curated by Antonio Parpinelli
 
Angèi's works are characterized by a style seemingly disjointed, formless, where the colors seem to be randomly primed, where the lucid chaos seems to cadence the rhythm and dynamics of the Whole and where the viewers must not try to settle for what they see at first glance in order not to get lost in an endless oblivion.
Matter and color consistency, search for essences and desire for primordial approaches, determination of the finite and intangible sublimation of the infinite, desire of the tale and determination in hiding behind the appearance of things: Angèi seeks a direct and physical relation with the palimpsest just for manifesting his being through his way of doing. The artist paints with his hands, mixes and spreads the oils with tactile devices infusing life to colors themselves, creating abstract compositions, highly dynamic, in black and white, modeling intense and evocative atmospheres, reminiscent of the turbulent and romantic ones by William Turner. It brings jobs that correspond to a big summary of his existence and of his past, the synthesis of an experiential and existential path dotted with emotions, thoughts, moods and passions that have found their ideal sublimation in the visual arts.
