“Mediterranean Icons”

The art project, which began to develop during the 90’s, is characterized by an iconography that echoes that of Byzantine religious art, re-interpreted through an expressionist contemporary art, where the iconic compartments, condensing the narrative, are preserved, but instead of the religious images, the ‘Mediterranean Icons’ carry symbolic meanings, veiled figures, and recount stories of mutation, transformation and struggle of a fluid and fugitive reality.

“Housed in the shadowy recesses of Ambrosino’s icons, which recall the dark secrets of Cumae,  figures twist and turn,  faces appear and disappear in the dark mists of a dream.” – Barbara Rose, ‘The Icon as Iconography’
