Joseph AUQUIER ANGILELLA'S PAINTINGS
EXHIBITION IN THE ROMAN CHURCH OF
CAMPAGNAC : JULY 2001
Traduit en Français
Joseph Auquier (whose
real name is Joseph ANGILELLA) is a creator who is craving for
is a true romantic, a visionary, quite sensitive. If his paintings
have a violent line, there are in fact skilfully arranged ( with
harmony). If the works on colours, it is because his paste is
rich, sometimes lava flows, taking in the gleam of enamel.
He has the critical outlook of an African who discovers our technological
civilisation with all its sophistication, along with its repressed
barbarity. In his paintings, there is a constant contrast between
rational and irrational, magic and science.
Afier having been throngh classical techniques, he came to a split
between shape and colour.
Violence, turmoil, swrirl, inner and outer space, structure and
technology, spectrum, signs, images could define his paintings.
An underlying drama is always present. The reading is rarely straightforward,
the shapes and the images always interfere creating new ones.
Images collide in order to reach a density and a deeper meaning.
Any notion of time and space is then blown out or rather different
times and spaces get crystallised on the canvas all at once.
Joseph Auquier becomes
intoxicated with liberty, he sets free forces that are within
him. He is a visionary who goes with the flow, quite often up
to the fringe. Some of his paintings even stopped on the edge
of danger, in this fever of space.
Up to then. the
human being has been excluded from his research. Then suddenly,
as an apparition, the human face comes haunting his paintings
in its shades of deep blue, the colour which svmbolises for him
