A journey full of emotion and meaning, which is affirmed in the painting of bold colors, of the slightly hinted forms and of the strong sign that resounds with ancient and that continues also in sculpture.This is testified by a group of ceramics from the Case Dogon series, present in the exhibition.

About

The new series of works on canvas and on paper by the artist from Campania is inspired by a flower, the crocus, known since ancient times for its rich presence along the Appian Way, the road that connected Maleventum - later to become Benevento - and Avellino, a city where the artist's roots reside.   For Archangel the crocus flowers embody the curatores, a sort of guardians of that street that the poet Stazio, in the first century after Christ, raised to "Queen of the streets". Their presence along the Appia route seemed to guarantee a sort of continuity in the connection between Rome and the southern provinces of the peninsula.
