“The mask of Agamemnon is an oil and acrylic painting on canvas created by the Italian artist Matteo Daini. The golden mask a symbol of the dual personality of the powerful and influential individuals has been fractured and reduced to geometrical forms and then reunited within a shallow, relief-like space. This process of de-construction and re-construction, along with the wide colour spectrum utilised in the painting, is aimed to emphasise the flatness of the canvas. The composition of the painting refers to its conceptual dimension – the two- dimensional character of the artwork is thus reinforcing the dual personality of the represented subject.” – Livia Ceci Neva
