EDUARD ANGELI “VENEZIA NOW”

Ikona gallery offers a unique and original vision of Venice, through the evocative painting of Eduard Angeli, in the exhibition 'VENEZIA NOW'. Philip Rylands, in the catalog for the gallery Jan Krugier & Cie of Geneva, enhances the sense of melancholy of Angeli, a widespread yearning that compels him to face each new day with brushes and crayons in hand. In his works can be traced a similarity to the paintings of Edward Hopper: 'the sense of loneliness.' Angeli has even given a name: huzun, the melancholy of infinite nuances described by the turkish writer Orhan Pamuk, the Nobel Prize for literature. Angeli orbits around the metaphysical painting of De Chirico or Sironi and figurative Surrealism of Magritte and Delvaux: the sense of an immanent presence, a narrative of which we are given a brief and disturbing vision. Giandomenico Romanelli, on the occasion of his exhibition 'VENICE' at the Museo Correr, in 2008, wrote of him that 'it is precisely the ambiguity of the images that often gives strength to the poetic paintings of angels, so that we perceive with anguish as well as with complicity curious as angelic figures s'aggirino over the skies of this city'. Eduard Angeli was born in 1942 in Vienna, one of three cities that have marked his life and his work, along with Istanbul and Venice. From 2004 he worked in Venice.
