The themes explored by in the works of Angelo Evangelou are life, death, rebirth and the nature cycle of time. Leading colours: black, red and ochre. The canvas is torn and is sewn once again with a red thread and different Medias are used upon these works such as: Earth, melted candle and calendars. The work bears intense symbolisms, such as the cross, a prehistoric, international symbol of primordial man and the completion of the human soul.
The works consist of two levels: the external level is a piece of canvas that has undergone alterations, destruction and an external metamorphosis, while the internal canvas includes representations of life and the beginning of recreation. By burning, the fire – as a source of life and death – has created openings on the external canvases through which the internal reality of the second canvas reveals life and recreation.
The artist will say: «The earth and dust attract us. The attraction of this gravity, this seductive glamour is so powerful that we spend our whole life attracted to earth and all its derivatives which nourish us.And when we die we enter deep inside of her, offering our bodies to earth in order to become one with its ecosystem. The erotic relationship reaches its peek with the offering of our bodies as a giftto earth, all the while wishing for a rebirth and metamorphosis. Through burial in the dark, we return as an embryo in earth’s womb, a seed which resists the irrevocable death thatts the rebirth and the photosynthesis and wants to bring the lightto the surface once again».
