Angelo Musco Photographic Surreal Landscapes

Turning reality upside down and creating works that run counter to preconceived ideas, is one of Angelo Musco’s strategies. Living structures (ie: nests, amniotic sacs, eggs) both literal and figurative stir a depth of emotion that relates to the artist’s delayed and traumatic birth that left both physical and subconscious scares.

The human body is the artist’s medium. He melds bodies like hundreds of brush strokes, creating large compositions that are re-workings of nature’s structures from the XY chromosome to a nurturing ant colony to a gigantic swirling underwater nest.

Born in Naples (Italy) in 1973, the youngest of five children, Angelo Musco, weighed in at 6.5 kilos. Musco’s mother had been having longer and longer pregnancies and larger and larger babies due to an uncommon hormonal dysfunction. She didn’t think anything was wrong and never went to the doctor even thought when she kissed friends she was so large she could not do it face to face and was calling herself a cruise ship.
