For this festival the Artist proposes the project ‘Luce dissolve’ (‘Light melts’) concerning the visual perception on which he has started working since 2003, with his previous “Luce Veloce” (‘Fast Light’) in which the photographic mean analyzes the fast bright rays that brighten the objects. This seeking is the attempt to fix through photography what our eyes loose in case of extreme speed since our brain focuses only on a few elements skipping others. But Light can also melt bodies as in ‘Luce dissolve’, where the bright bundle separates, destroys and corrupts. At the same time it conflates transforming what appears different in an unique body. The emphasis on colour he uses in this work underlines the physical nature of the visible spectrum; as for the bodies also the light is divided in the bright bands of blue, green and red.

In a floating dimension between painting and photography, with ‘Luce Dissolve’ it continues, due to succeeding deepens, the artistic research started in 2003 by Giovanni De Angelis with his project ‘Luce Veloce’. Lonely shapes, still or moving, cross with their shades coloured light bundles, they interrupt their flow dividing themselves into two, delivering their own substance to the surrounding environment and again integrating themselves with an original consistency, they turn into simple outlines becoming an ‘unicum’ with the background. Distant from time and space, they live in the brief time lapse of the exhibition without a past, lacking a future. That’s how Giovanni De Angelis investigates the endless potentialities of the Light, it’s interact with the bodies, making them visible and at the same time modifying their intrinsic quality. It obviously appears an ideal junction with that visual culture that belongs us: the photographer suffers the same enchantment which the artists for a long time have not known to escape. Much more than an interest, that develops beginning from the Impressionism, finding it’s full realization in the scientific searches of the French pointillists and the Italian divisionistis, to reach the intuitions and the experimentations of the historical avant-garde, which so much also owes photography. In the continuous debating that opposes light and matter, the Artist participates observing and interpreting this interaction through the camera objective , which not only records the appearance but also emotions, moods returned by saturated colours of the visible spectrum as the red, the green and the blue, that dominate the whole series. What appears on the surface of the works of Giovanni De Angelis is the light that disassembles it’s self and meeting the body it sometimes becomes filament, sometimes dense brushstroke. More than ever, in these images, the etymology of the term photography turns out – to write with the light – reflecting itself in this job in which the bright sign makes the surface vibrate. A dense and deep matter is caught that once absorbed and dissolved is given back to the eye that perceives and preserve, in an overall perception, the detected instant. (Elena Paloscia).

After secondary school Giovanni de Angelis studies engineering and computer science. Professional of the information technology he approaches traditional photography in the nineties. He works as press-photographer of musical events and in 2005 his reportage on Rome Electronic Music Festival is published on Analogik. He run one-man exhibitions among which: Luce Veloce , Rashomon, Rome (2004-2005) Sui iki, Doozo Gallery, Rome (2005-2006); Strade con pioggia [amefuri no michi], Giardino di vicolo delle palle, Rome (2005); Domaine Neferis, La Notte Bianca, Palazzo Fontana Trevi, Rome (2005).
