Startling, beautiful, disturbing. Maurizio Anzeri’s work is provocative and inspiring. Using threads of synthetic hair and discarded vintage portraits, Anzeri transforms a forgotten image into a three-dimensional object with an intense psychological aspect. suggestive of alternate stories and identities. Often he emphasizes specific facial features, letting the raw image peek through the complex and colorful geometric patterns. Anzeri says: “The intimate human action of embroidery is a ritual of making and reshaping stories and history of these people. I am interested in the relation between intimacy and the outer world.” We are fascinated by the unique and unexpected visual language that his art creates.
