Touching a Beating Heart

Aurelio Costarella's creative process is one of self-exploration and a means of telling his story via visual language. Each piece is a very personal and heartfelt account of his journey from darkness to light. "The work is layered, evoking emotion, feeling, thought and memory. Using sgraffito to scratch back into layers of deep-seated emotion revealing hidden parts of the human experience speaks to my journey, the process both therapeutic and cathartic."
