  • Catalogue Essay

    Untitled, 1994, is a prime example of Angelo Venosa’s anatomical sculptures which characterized the artist’s oeuvre in the 1990s. Having abandoned painting in search of a more personal artistic medium, Venosa’s artwork presents the most basic elements of the human body in elegant compositions, inviting a metaphysical contemplation on the part of the viewer. The circular arrangement of the present lot, utilizing 10 bones made of Carrara marble references Neolithic earthworks, such as Stonehenge. The simplicity of the composition highlights the refined nature of the Carrara marble and forces the viewer to find beauty in an unconventional subject matter.
