Still time to see these syringe sculptures in Venice

The Venice Biennale ends on the 26th of November and so does the Personal Structures group exhibition. It has been exciting and gratifying to have thousands of people visiting Palazzo Mora but all good things must come to an end.
If you can’t make Venice some of my work can be viewed in another beautiful city – Florence, Italy at De Freo Gallery

Artist Anthony Moman Creates A Haunting Sculpture From Syringes

Wild Child 2017
Syringes on marine board inside plexiglass box
27 x 90 x 110 cm

Wild Child continues Moman’s theme of syringes in art. The child like features are emphasized with the colourful “butterfly” needles that are used to create her hair.

Syringes are symbolic and provoke many different emotional reactions, mostly negative. Often associated with drug taking, syringes can, however, alleviate pain, cure and protect against life threatening diseases, and change the way we look and feel about ourselves. Our very existence can depend on one syringe, and they therefore deserve our respect and their place in the history of humanity.

Arriving in Venice last week, I was greeted by dark skies, rumbles of thunder and then rain….but wait a minute ! Who cares about the weather. I have been invited to exhibit my artwork at the preeminent cultural event in the most beautiful city in the whole world !

Anthony-moman-personal.-structures-kiribati-pavilion-venice-biennale Sharing Palazzo Mora and Personal Structures is the Kiribati National Pavilion

The Venice Biennale draws hundreds of thousands of art lovers and professionals from all over the world and I am going to be a part of this for the next 7 months, so I repeat, who cares about the weather.

After checking in to my apartment, I decided to head off to Palazzo Mora early  to check that the lights  did not reflect too much off the plexiglas cases. This palazzo is one of the three palazzi…

Filming at Palazzo Mora

Last week I was back in Venice at Palazzo Mora to meet a collector and film an interview on my what makes Anthony Moman tick.
I had a stimulating and frank discussion with a group of extremely bright, future art professionals and was definitely out of my comfort zone.
There were some sharp and challenging questions about my technique and thought processes and at the end I felt drained but some somehow exhilarated at the same time.

To Be One is inspired by the title of the exhibition Open Borders and was an affirmation that we are stronger together
