Atrworks 2005-2000 studies
After Bacon, who staged the deformed torment of the human mind, Arrigo endeavours to trace out a confine between humanity still worthy of this name and humanity not worthy of it. It is not true that man is fiercer than beasts: in some cases he is, but to his badness, through the dialectics and movements of colour, there is opposed a figuration of the disfigured that appeals to the worthiest depths of the human mind.
