Zanolino got married
by Josée Thissen-Rojer
Visual artist Philippe Zanolino married the Dutch psychologist Ingeborg Bosch (1960) on September 17th, 2020. A detailed article about Zanolino, in the series ‘Artistry during the pandemic’ was published in the Wednesday, March 17th, 2021, edition of Amigoe.
Due to the global pandemic, Ingeborg Bosch stays in Curaçao longer than planned and meets Zanolino during that period. It’s love at first sight, and the couple marries 11 days later. Zanolino attributes the new happiness that so unexpectedly crossed his path, to the pandemic: “For me, COVID changed into LOVID (Love it)”, he declares euphorically.
Zanolino makes a wedding portrait for the occasion, entitled ‘Dependensia’ (Dependence), reflecting the bridal pair’s souls-connection. It is a diptych and the brown-colored bone in the middle of the two works forms the connection between the two parts. The dog symbolizes God in Zanolino’s oeuvre and in this work the bone symbolizes God’s good gifts. The dependency on one another in the relationship is reflected in the painting by the bone being divided across the two works.
Relationships are about collaboration and Zanolino’s message is that we must seek it there. The answer to all of life’s problems lies in the team spirit because the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
Curaçao Art congratulates the couple and wishes them a happy marriage.
