Angelo Musco

The gift of sight. If you were looking in from another dimension. What would you see? What does God see? Not individuals. Patterns. Universal patterns.  Angelo Musco’s work is enthralling. He sees something. Like he first time you found an bird’s nest. Where did the bird get the blueprint? And eddy. Undertows. Bee hives. The movement of stars. The rush hour. Tax forms. The net. Fascinating. And nauseous. For us who get car sick.
