Vesperbild signifies the Lamentation of Christ. It depicts the Virgin Mary cradling the lifeless body of Jesus and is a marked event in Christian art. However, Agostino Arrivabene ‘s ‘Vesperbild’ is a profound contemporary interpretation of this theme. His work projects transitory almost metamorphic stages between light and dark, twilight, transfiguration and rebirth.
Agostino’s exhibition, ‘Vesperbild’ is show at The Giovanni Bonelli Gallery from May 22 – July 26 2014.
