Painting, Philosophy, Animal, Acrylic, 100x140x5cm
This work is a tribute to contemporary artist Filippo La Vaccara.
The paint is available at the Arturarte Gallery of Nepi (VT).
The habit of taking on the works of known or, more often, unknown authors, becomes a quotation rather than an imitation or a copy in as much as Angelo’s works cannot be defined as false: they are entities in their own right; independent of the original. By way of quoting unknown authors to the public Angelo amplifies their work and by implication their fame.
Thus, the authenticity of an imitation which is almost identical to the original is no longer a priority as are the mechanisms employed by the one who created it. Often taking it apart, recreating it, rethinking it, in a word, personalising it.
