«The Embrace (B version)»
Description of the work:
This oil on canvas tapestry has been realized by Cesare Catania entirely by a spatula, inspired by a version of the same subject made a few years earlier .
The embrace is interpreted by the author in a tight sense between a man and a woman, in a broader sense between people of two different colors . The themes of anti-Semitism and racism are reconciled to the artist in an embrace .
The two figures in the action of embracing each other seem to overlap one another, almost as if to give protection and stability to each other. One exists and can only exist as a function of the other.
