Man and animal, another anthropomorphic figure. I believe that animals live much more in contact with nature and follow their own inner laws beyond good or evil. Human beings however are capable of insights and humour. I am convinced that for the sake of our survival we need to be in connection with our animal soul. In this painting I try to express the constant fluidity of all existing forms, animal or human, and yet their exact and precise form for a split second of time.

Angela Keller grew up in Switzerland and started to follow a career as palaeontologist. At the same time she started to take lessons in drawing and painting at the School of Arts at the University in Bern and attended art classes under several Swiss painters. In her thirties she immigrated to Italy where she developed to the passionate painter she is today. Angela has received many rewards and exhibited her works in numerous international art shows e.g. in 2019 ARTEXPO NYC, USA, 2018 Spectrum Miami USA, 2018 at Arte Borgo Gallery in Rome and FUTURARTE at the Museum MIIT Turin.
Angela creates experimental, playful artwork with hints of dreams, fantasy, and charm. Her paintings fluctuate between surrealism and symbolism; they are dreamy, otherworldly, and lyrical in their balance between fantasy and reality. She depicts in her works imaginative imagery while also incorporating certain realistic elements, such as the hills of Kabul, the coast of Portugal or the villages in Calabria, in Southern Italy, where Angela currently lives and works.
