Riccardo Angelo’s paintings defy gravity, capturing intersections of time, space, landscape and history - a world of weightless figures in trees and rocky outcrops. These visions of temporal places document ever-changing stories where landscape holds the activities of human habitation.

The paintings try to capture a temporal sensation. Time and space. Transience. Light finds forms – images are lost and found. The human form inhabits the spaces with all its frailty, splendor and perversity.

Painting and drawing field trips to Hanging Rock in the Macedon Ranges, Victoria, have inspired my artworks in recent years. It’s an awe-inspiring and majestic place. These landscapes are captivatingly strange and in many ways, quite theatrical. The giant rock formations stand side by side, oddly positioned in clusters, as if at a gathering.

To the landscape, I bring my own present feelings, as I do in the studio. Compositions begin from sketches or memory. Faces appear and disappear on the surface as I apply more paint. I react to marks placed – decide what to keep, take risks and lose some in order to find others.
