Painting with Rust | Iron Soul

ALESSANDRO CARNEVALE IS AN ITALIAN ARTIST WHO HAS DEDICATED HIS PARTICULAR ART TO THE EXPRESSIVE POSSIBILITIES OF INDUSTRIAL ARCHAEOLOGY.

The post industrial landscape became, in the meantime, a metaphysical and terribly concrete place, where memories chase the flotsam of heavy industrialization. The wounds of pollution, the fatigue of several  generations of workers, the hypocrisy of an unsustainable energetic model: all of these things remain silent in the decayed greatness of discarded factories. Factories like churches, cathedrals of a lost world: a place where he’s tried to create a post-apocalyptic landscape inhabited by ghosts of the 20th Century.
