Lorenzo De Angelis lives and works in Vitorchiano (VT), Italy.
His work focuses on the possibilities of spatial sectioning and structuring of surfaces, starting from the minimal presence of the gesture on a plane: it therefore develops a pictorial language minimal, icastic and intuitive.
The images originate from the application in painting of physical (space-time) and philosophical concepts (clinamen), without being descriptive and representative, but chasing a “metaphysics” dimension that discards scientific and real data.
The starting point is the pulsating space on which the artist works in the Monopluriplanes series, in which signs are imprinted on the support through a matrix, as in a printing process, and bind themselves together delineating the rhythmic leveling of the void.
Subsequently this spatiality evolves into an increasingly volumeless and concrete situation, with the overlapping of multiple structures that compact on the surface and push in the directions contemplated in two-dimensionality. This process indicates the research for a flat and dynamic image at the same time, without centre and periphery.
