Andrew Catanese developed a body of work that engages in a process of myth making. The paintings adapt vignettes from Dante’s Inferno and places them in landscapes along the Chattahoochee River. Encounters with coyote and deer in the dark woods and along the liminal space of the river hold intrinsic symbolism akin to formal narratives like those in Dante’s epic poem. The works, through the incorporation of Dante’s writing, critically address archaic moral dogmas whose arbitrary values have never reflected the complexity of the human condition. Catanese imbues these places with myth and magic as a way to discuss how people form a sense of who they are and their moral systems based upon their surroundings. In doing so, the landscapes become important parts of a person’s identity as they learn and construct mythologies.
