Angelo Filomeno concentrates his efforts at embroidery on shantung silk, often incorporating garnets and Swarovski crystals into his scenes. Hyena, which makes use of Filomeno’s signature symbols derived from stylized forms of flora and fauna (peacock feathers, artichokes, lizards), is an allegorical tableau showing the peacock’s pride resulting in a fall. Filomeno’s silks are part of a neo-baroque esthetic, art that is not afraid to shy away from austere minimalism to embrace an exuberance for texture and colour.
