Angelo Filomeno’s work encompasses two- and three-dimensional realms and questions the traditional boundaries between fine and applied arts. The piece references an image from his Accident Drawing series created while he recovered from an accident in his native Puglia, Italy.
Using a signature visionary vocabulary rooted in his life, the work displays an animal skull section, with fangs, and is engraved into a thick block of transparent Plexiglas mounted on a black board. The black background creates depth and causes the ominous image engraved in the Plexiglas to lose its specific meaning and become a milky landscape or a lunar terrain.
Angelo Filomeno is represented by Galerie Lelong, NY, and was included in the last Venice Art Biennale.
