    The Veiled Ghosts of  Livio Scarpella

    The work of Italian contemporary artist Livio Scarpella turns good and evil into delicacy.  This group of sculptures, named “Ghosts Underground”, depicts lost souls anguishing beneath the effect of a thin veil.  Scarpella’s interest in this subject was inspired by a trip to the Sansevero Chapel in Naples, home to Antonio Corradini’s “Veiled Christ”.  Before that time, he mostly exhibited paintings for a decade. By mixing influences of Rococo sculptors like Corradini with modern iconography, Scarpella explores a struggle with religious faith.  He couples his “blessed” and “damned” figures with light and dark colored mineral rocks, like amethyst and quartz, inside the chest.  They are hardened hearts that embody the ghost hidden within. Reminiscent of Michelangelo’s The Prisoners, these gentle busts unveil the ghost within. Scarpella takes this idea to a new level in his recent work. His exhibit “Fuori dal Tempo” (“Out of Time”) now showing at Gallery Gomiero in Italy, looks at the theme of sin without repentance.  Undeniably, Scarpella pursues a morbid imagination dominated by smug virtue and natural beauty.

    “Fuori dal Tempo” by Livio Scarpella is on view at Gallery Gomiero in Milan, Italy

About me

22. New Media Graduate. I am also working currently as a freelance designer. Info on that to be provided soon!

If you ever need someone to just listen without necessarily giving you advice or feeedback, hit up my ask/fanmail. I will never post them.

I enjoy many things from Art to Zelda games.
An art director for a career? Or something like it that? But the main goal is to always help others.

I always try to listen to people, but I will rant myself and I usually give warning when I'm about to.

My favorite part of a person, including myself, is the eyes. There's something about them I can't get enough of. They all seem to have their own stories.

I am not afraid to admit that I am a Christian. But the last thing my religion ever taught me was the judge others. The Lord speaks of love, so that is what I try to achieve. If you're as "open" as you think you are, you will respect my decision as I do your own. LGBTQ + ASEXUAL friendly <3
