D’Arcangelo is recognized for his graphically painted images of roads and road signs, set in a distinctly American landscape. In this simple composition of a two-lane road receding into a high, central vanishing point, the artist presents a philosophical approach to life that speaks to the past, present and future. The future is indicated by a small road sign noting an upcoming curve, not yet visible on the horizon. The rearview mirror mounted on top of the painting suggests the road already traveled, the past. However, with the title Here and Now, D’Arcangelo clearly advocates for living in the moment.
