The philosophical question of our identity
Following the question of human identity, Doménico CV Talarico employs flowing brush strokes to create his figures in pastel acrylic and oil colors. The artist creates a fictitious world in which people come back to life. Thus, the observer of his works looks at men, women and children from the 1900-1950s. His unique style allows room for interpretation, who these people were and what they experienced, causing viewers to sink into their own world of thoughts and reflect on deeply ingrained dreams and desires.
