Guglielmo is a portrait artist.
“I investigate my own background and my search draws the viewer in, shakes them, screams at them with huge dimensions and demanding subjects. The large-scale calls for rage, with the figures portrayed staring intensely. That is, each subject is deeply engaged with the own history, present but at the same time detached. They are the youth of a disenchanted world, proudly brandishing their own disillusions to a distressed observer.
The young faces depicted embrace several feelings, such as boredom, arrogance, frailness, fear or mere indifference; through these emotions the characters affirm their genuine presence (their Da-Sein) only in the present moment since they have no yesterday and no tomorrow – no drive nor ambition. It could also be said that these young characters spring a terrific lucidity, which make their existence sort of insolent. They are the youth of a disenchanted world, proudly brandishing their own disillusions to a distressed observer.”
