José Angelino. Sometimes it Leaps Forth
José Angelino draws and creates sculptures applying behaviours and laws of nature.
His artistic research is inspired by the observation of natural events and their dynamics, their occurrence and "preferential" development. His works play with the interference, the resonance and the natural flows of energy, merging scientific experiments and artistic practices. Angelino comes from a physics background, but he has later discovered that it is the poetics of natural dynamics that interests him most; his academic knowledge of classical physics and quantum mechanics, influences the way he creates works of art.
With this attitude the artist creates sculptures that reproduce and modify the development of a natural event: by interposing obstacles he generates interference, he expands the flowing of elements and then he forces it by investigating the thin and indefinite boundary between space and light.
“It is probably true quite generally that in the history of human thinking the most fruitful developments frequently take place at those points where two different lines of thought meet. These lines may have their roots in quite different parts of human nature, in different times or different cultural environments or different religious traditions: hence if they actually meet, that is, if they are at least so much related to each other that a real interaction can take place, then one may hope that new and interesting developments may follow”. (Werner Karl Heisenberg)
