The paintings of Alfred De Angelo transport the viewer into a sensual world of provocative beauty. They serve as doorways to a compelling visual world. Delineated with a remarkable fluency and expertise, these images may beguile or bewilder, but never fail to impress.
His paintings lure the viewer out of their well-worn patterns of thought, letting them press against the limits of their understanding, giving them permission to to be amazed - and confused - and delighted.
"Over the years, I let my vision lead me from one group of paintings to the next, rather than trying to deliberately develop a 'style'. This has helped keep my art fresh by allowing me to carry over what I've learned from one aesthetic to the other.
Our experiences in life are usually localized and subjective, creating a series of impressions on a personal scale. I am continually developing a private vocabulary of images with which I attempt to express different aspects of these experiences.
With my surrealist and metaphysical paintings I try to look 'through' outward appearances and somehow embody the essential mystery of existence. My still life, flower and landscape paintings are simply the result of the joy of seeing expressed through the medium of paint."
Alfred has been an exhibiting member of the Copley Society of Art, Boston, since 2004, and is an exhibiting member of the Wellesley Society of Artists, the Newton Art Association and the Needham Art Association. He welcomes inquiries from galleries, dealers, collectors, or anyone who cares to comment on his work.
