“The Embrace (B Version)” – Cesare Catania – Contemporary Tapestry


Year: 2016

Dimensions: 255 cm x 175 cm

Technique: Oil with spatula on canvas




First of all, “The Embrace (B Version)” is an oil on canvas tapestry, realized by Cesare Catania entirely by a spatula, inspired by a version of the same subject made a few years earlier .
The embrace is interpreted by the author in a tight sense between a man and a woman, in a broader sense between people of two different colors . The themes of anti semitism and racism are above all reconciled to the artist in an embrace .
Two human figures in the action of embracing each other seem to overlap one another, almost as if to give protection and stability to each other. As a result, one exists and can only exist as a function of the other.
