Alberto Peola Arte Contemporanea

text by Marco Enrico Giacomelli

The Ghost of Nostalgia

I first met Gabriele Arruzzo in 2003. His work was on view in a group show curated by Luca Beatrice and Guido Curto, entitled At least 16 minutes (slightly longer than the ephemeral celebrity prophesized by Andy Warhol). The exhibition was at the Galleria Art & Arts, an art gallery that was rather short-lived. Arruzzo’s work was inspired by the triptych Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion (c. 1944) and, since Bacon had been the subject of my dissertation a few years before, it captured my attention. We talked about it for a long time, in the street.
