The individualism of our society, favoured by modern social networks and technological devices, and by the every-day stress of a life made of noises, commotion and distractions, prevents people from interrelating and communicating with each other, and from experiencing the positive energy concealed in each of us. This is the main message of Giovanni Pulze’s novel works regarding Metropolitan Angels. The angel, a seemingly common man recognizable by his wings, transforms himself into a messenger of sharing and help, since he is suitable for an empathetc, positve and generous relationship which mutates, without notice, into perceivable reality. The theme is always inserted into an urban context of big or small cities, never into a rural or landscape environment, always depicted in rich in bright colors, where cars, roaring motorcycles, buses and metro symbolize the technological development and the dynamism of human progress, but also the alienation of contemporary life. Open umbrellas symbolize a "bubble" in which men live isolated, completely detached and indifferent to what surrounds them. He who can lower the umbrella, or close it, suddenly finds the pleasure of sharing his life with others. Children and animals (especially dogs), being deprived of cultural infrastructure defaults, are capable of instinctively detect who is available to a disinterested relation: Pulze often represents them because children are the future of humankind.
Join Giovanni Pulze for his Opening reception & Artist's Talk on July 19 at the Italian Cultural Institute.
