Always interested in the concept of image and the multiple forms it can take, Woc is fascinated by the globally recognized public images.
Mal di Stomaco (literally Stomachache) is a stream of consciousness, a collection of images that have appeared in the artist’s mind one after the other. Images of the great masterpieces of art – such as the works of Van Gogh and Rothko that influenced Woc during his artistic training – and contemporary images that have instead characterized the public imagination in recent months – such as the Amazon logo and the Confederate States flag. Long-lasting images and ephemeral images are combined together in a project that is free of a pre-established scheme, and are returned to the viewer’s memory as often imprecise and grotesque sketches.
