Angelo Filomeno
Feb. 15–June 1, 2008
Gordon Contemporary Artists Project Gallery

New York artist Angelo Filomeno employs embroidery and appliqué on shantung silk in the creation of shimmering images, in which sharp-fanged skulls and prancing skeletons interact with such beautiful elements as peacocks, feathers and butterflies in modern versions of the danse macabre. Filomeno’s work is on view in the 2007 Venice Biennale, the theme of which, “Think With the Senses, Feel With the Mind: Art in the Present Tense,” perfectly encapsulates the sensuality and intellectual depth of the artist’s embroidered images.
