MAX PELLEGRINI (n. 1945)

 
In an abstracted image of St. Peter’s basilica in Rome, Pellegrini returns to religious narratives to express his “anti-ideological and anti-pauperist” impression of the church and its relationship with faith (Antonio Monda, “Interview with Max Pellegrini). In the lower half of the painting, the birth of Jesus is the central focus, while the life of the church is highlighted in the upper half. According to Pellegrini, he depicted the birth of Jesus in the style of a baroque 18th century Neapolitan nativity scene that can be interpreted “as a feast for the birth of faith.” This faith is conceived of as “the material support for the Popes’ power and of the Church’s glory,” represented in this painting by the Pope clutching the moon in his hand. <br> <br><br>- Partial text adapted from Max Pellegrini, July 2015, in conversation with Curator Chip Tom In an abstracted image of St. Peter’s basilica in Rome, Pellegrini returns to religious narratives to express his “anti-ideological and anti-pauperist” impression of the church and its relationship with faith (Antonio Monda, “Interview with Max Pellegrini).

En una imagen abstracta de la basílica de San Pedro en Roma, Pellegrini vuelve a las narraciones religiosas para expresar su impresión "antiideológica y antipauperista" de la iglesia y su relación con la fe (Antonio Monda, "Entrevista con Max Pellegrini). En la mitad inferior del cuadro, el nacimiento de Jesús es el foco central, mientras que la vida de la iglesia se destaca en la mitad superior. Según Pellegrini, representó el nacimiento de Jesús en el estilo de un belén napolitano barroco del siglo XVIII que puede ser interpretado "como una fiesta del nacimiento de la fe". Esta fe se concibe como "el soporte material del poder de los Papas y de la gloria de la Iglesia", representada en este cuadro por el Papa agarrando la luna en su mano.
