Hamiltons Gallery : Guido Mocafico : Serpens


“I achieve my goal when I have people finding something strangely beautiful that they would not think so. I guess art is there to open people’s eyes and minds on things that they could not think could be that way.” – Guido Mocafico

Hamiltons presents the first exhibition with Guido Mocafico in eight years. The show comprises thirteen large format, unique, pigment prints from Mocafico’s highly acclaimed Serpens series.

Guido Mocafico is neither a scientist nor a collector of curiosities, but a photographer and lover of art who partakes in the vocabulary and colours of nature. He regards jellyfish, snakes, and tarantulas as the creation of an unparalleled artist. A strange sensation emanates from his images, which combine a vision of the unknown with a large dose of mystery – and fear, for these animals secrete a toxic substance that when injected by sting or bite can cause death. With just the right amount of distance, Mocafico offers a contemporary view of the demiurge, showing us that we can live in a world of illusion.
