A New Meeting Place, Acrylic on canvas 108 x 96 2011
Giovanni says that art must keep up with the march of technology, in order for art to thrive it has to be at the forefront. Art facilitates a connection with humanity and allows for us to understand one another and the world. Giovanni finds himself excited by social media, and in here is a universe of symbols. Here is a visualization of the highest possibility of the internet. Golden signs, stars, and religions are combined with the newest innovations. Leaves a strong statement about the interrelation between religion, technology, and art. If the internet can have such power, doesn’t art need to reflect the trends and developments of such newness?
“Social media is the new religion.”-G
