Angela Caporaso

Angela Caporaso is an Italian artist focusing on mail art, visual poetry   and artists books, working with the mediums of collage, trash-art and, more recently, digital formats.

Angela's art has always been characterised by constant research and experimentation.

She has worked on the words of the main contemporary writers and has dedicated some of her exhibitions to Albert Camus, Emily Dickinson and Pier Vittorio Tondelli.

Influenced by Pop Art, she has inserted in her works the typical comic "bubbles", as well as advertising references, decontextualised and transformed into a proper artistic language.

Since her first exhibitions, which date back to the eighties, Angela has revealed a constant strain towards new expressive languages.  This constant research has led her 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.  Angela works with un-recyclable waste material, humble and inert, which acquires a new sense and meaning thanks to the artist's intervention.
