Angelo Venosa: Penumbra

Nara Roesler Gallery, Sao Paulo

One of the few artists dedicated to sculpture from the 80s Generation, whose tonic was painting, Angelo Venosa, from São Paulo based in Rio de Janeiro, brings the exhibition “Penumbra” to his hometown. Curated by historian and art curator Vanda Klabin, the exhibition at Galeria Nara Roesler stems from another of the same name, held last year in Vila Velha.

“Penumbra” features eight sculptures – six from the exhibition at the Capixaba Museum and
another two, unpublished, carried out in 2017. The works were produced in materials such as bronze, wood, fabric and fiberglass, and explore full and empty areas that create forms of unexpected plasticity. The sculptures form with the shadow produced by the
incident lighting an enigmatic body. Together, they build a particular dreamlike atmosphere.

According to Klabin, the new series of works by Angelo Venosa raises many disconcerting questions. “The agency of other materials to build a new continent of work will preside over the creation of a nucleus of works wrapped in luminous incidences that develops in an internal turbulence, in which the forms oscillate and take position, in the sense of multiplying the planes, creating a spatial ambiguity”.
