- Restless and interrogative, the works of Angelo Venosa question the viewer's vision - says Vanda Klabin, by revealing that the artist will explore the Museum Vale equivalence between the full and empty areas, by projecting shadows on the architectural surfaces of the institution. - To the extent that these works are developed, forms emerge and acquire an unexpected plasticity. Whole notion of movement is present in these shifting shadows, boasting the most varied and ambiguous forms and these indeterminate zones acquire a plastic presence that builds and experiences in space itself - concludes the curator.
- Show of Angelo Venosa in the celebrations of 20 years of the Museum Vale reinforces the institution's commitment to promote art and culture as processing and formation of the young phenomenon, Barbosa says Ronaldo, director of the Museum. for Ronaldo, Venosa is an artist who walks alongside your time, always dedicated to experiment new materials, technology and its developments in the creative process. - In the Valley Museum, says, the sculptor will surprised to display a new opportunity to realize their work.
