Angela Caporaso's art has always been characterized by a constant research and experimentation.
Since her first exhibitions, which date back to the eighties, she has revealed a constant strain towards new expressive languages.
This constant research led Angela to contaminate sign with colour, font with image, literature with painting, as though one single medium was not sufficient to express her complex imaginative world.
She has worked on the words of the main contemporary writers and has dedicated some of her exhibitions to Albert Camus, Emily Dickinson, Pier Vittorio Tondelli.
Influenced by Pop Art, she has inserted in her works the typical comics “bubbles”, as well as advertising references, decontextualized and transformed into a proper artistic language.
She has worked with unrecyclable waste material, humble and inert, which has acquired new sense and meaning thanks to the artist’s intervention.
