artwork number 13

“Lisbon Zoo” – Cesare Catania – Contemporary Painting

Year: 2015

Dimensions: 120 cm x 165 cm

Technique: Chalk, natural pigments, natural rope and acrylic on canvas

Description:

Inspired during a visit to Lisbon Zoo, this 3d painting shows the vision of Cesare Catania to synthesize all the space and the actions around him on one pannel. In this work the “overlapping pannels” embrace a giraffe and an elephant on the second pannel, a raging bull in the foreground. The bull is represented with dissembled horns and fiery eyes, almost as if to fit sideways into the scene. The elephant plays with a small ball bringing it to its mouth (in fact it is clearly seen that the ball looses pieces of itself during its journey). The animals in this work are all on the move: the giraffe proudly walking (head high in fact you see all the legs), the elephant plays with the ball and the bull “throws” itself aside in the scene.
