ARTISTS ITALIAN CONTEMPORARY:
BIOGRAPHY ESSENTIAL ARTIST
Angelo Mazzoleni was born in Florence on June 7, 1952 .. It starts soon his artistic activity, cultivated already in the youth, under the guidance of some teachers and attending courses at the Accademia Carrara Bergamo.In these years, participates in the first exhibitions painting in Lombardy and in other Italian regions. Some travel, particularly in Germany and Paris, enrich his artistic and cultural baggage and affect its first part of pittorica.Si also interested in discovering paleontology in particular some important fossils, donated to museums in Milan and Bergamo, including a erionide a generally still unknown and which was given its name in the relevant publications scientifiche.L 'interest in the mystery of the past, for history, especially early in his ancestral size, is one of the other elements that characterize the His research also in the field of painting, even before the foundation, with other artists, the group "NEW ART SINCRETICA." "The evolutionary path of the artist, now thirty years, is marked by a personal search for the origins of the world of its vital forces Which, despite the variety of themes and techniques, appears as a single inner journey through time and the realities of our present. There are three main moments of this whole path and below illustrated with video images and text works critical stretch from the general catalogue of Maestro.
GUIDE TO READING OF WORKS:
STEP 1: THE HISTORIC SINCRETISM
Plaintiffs in the works of master, especially at the stage of historical syncretism, its "squarci" or windows overlook the mystery and on time, more often on nothing, understood as a cosmic dimension and interior, sometimes seem irreparable wounds of a destiny inscrutable , Signs of existential crisis of man but also of contemporary civilization. In other squarci ricuciti these moments, as in a suture, shall no longer attempting to explore size inside and beyond the real, but as wounds rehabilitated, the desire saving recover something that escapes us and dies, from the point of view so poetic: a sort of "return to the canvas" after the cuts of Fontana and the after-thought duchampiano and, to that effect, represent a synthesis of a large part of thought and poetic sincretico-conceptual artist. Its theme is in fact focused on exploration of outreach and dimensions of life through historic changes in an attempt to grasp the profound sense, to bring them to the reality of our present. A complex operation reworking original languages expressed by 'art in different eras and different human cultures for rapportarle to our time, trying to achieve a sincresi precisely the universal language of humanity through time and spazio.Le techniques and materials used at this stage are manifold (jute dust and sand, ropes, old wood, elements of nature as palm bark, cork residue marine eroded by time and all'acrilico addition to oil. The unifying element is that it is in any case almost always of matter that has accompanied the life of cultures present and ancient passate.Materiali therefore, able to tell a story a secret for energy intrinsic that preserve itself and that the teacher draw in his compositions and material combinations.

STEP 2: THE CONTEMPORARY SINCRETISMO
Barby, Mani, and plastic toys, not only as a metaphor and bitter irony of our time.
If one looks at the works of the second period of the search for the teacher, that of "contemporary syncretism," apparently seems to enter another world compared to the first phase. In reality this is just appearance, not substance. The underlying theme of research artistic Mazzoleni is the same, changing only the materials of which the teacher uses to deepen more directly the dynamics of the dramas and contradictions of our time. Then a continuum, a completion and deepening of issues already raised in the historic phase of syncretism: "A single journey through time and history in search of more genuine sense of life and our present. If the prospects of the first survey were the windows and squarci, now your gaze moves more directly on the size of our present reunited by the technological revolution and the way globalizzazione.In sometimes ironic, sometimes provocative, in other circumstances trying summaries harmonics more 'difficult, given the material used (plastic bags of rubbish, industrial waste etc.). the teacher invites us to reflect on the tragedies and contradictions of contemporary society, in some cases, so controversial but always purposeful, a reflection note on "Where we go", without beceri moralisms but with critical eyes and disenchanted, nobilitando the same trade and transforming it artistically to express those contents and universal values that are the basis of his research sincretica. The topics covered are mainly: the war, 'Pollution, the fate of our time, globalization and of course itemi themselves related to the current system of art and culture. The master himself is aware and is more aware at this stage, with markedly more social connotations, which today 'Artist can not' afford to be passive in the face of mercificazioni and mistificazioni which often pass through our society, but must also engage culturally, socially and politically as well as artistically, to make its critical contribution to society in which he lives. Not by chance, belong to this period also several of its written polemics with personalities known of that system and reflections on a certain system of power of art and culture.
- STEP 3: THE SPIRITUAL SINCRETISMO
The phase of syncretism contemporary course prepares the ground (see demonstrating the works which address the issue of parallel dimensions), the third phase, that of Sincretismo spiritual. Crossing the past and present, the artist turns hour course to the future, the fate that awaits us: the closure is natural, unified and consequential of a ... Read More
