Salvatore Arancio, They're Here, They're Under Us, 2014 (detail)
Salvatore Arancio’s main interest lies in the potential of images. Departing from their literal meaning, he creates new juxtapositions that are both beautifully evocative and deeply disquieting. Working across a range of media such as photo-etchings, collage, animation and video, he looks to nature and science for his source of inspiration, while unsettling any hint of the sublime by re-framing the images and the viewer experience.
The following works are from the Kandor13 portfolio.
Born in Catania, Italy in 1974, Salvatore Arancio lives and works in London. He has exhibited internationally at venues such as; Camden Arts Centre, London; Contemporary Art Society, London; Federica Schiavo Gallery, Rome; Museo d’Arte Contemporanea della Sicilia, Palermo; Whitechapel Gallery, London; and Upstream Gallery, Amsterdam.
