Milano Portanuova # 13 (limited edition of 3, this photo n. 1 of 3, flatbed UV print on plexiglass and dibond, cm 120x80)
This photo is part of the series “Biocities Two”, that is a research on geometrical abstraction.
My research began photographing landscapes of contemporary architecture. Using particular shooting perspectives and compressing the depth of the place through a strong zoom, I transform the landscapes of contemporary architecture in abstract geometries, in which depth and three-dimensionality of the original place often disappear altogether.
I do the next step with the series “(De)Compositions-Metaphor of Life”, that I propose as a project in this edition of Celeste Prize 2015. Here, using the same geometrical shapes that are in the architectural photo, I realize installations in plexiglass and glass sculptures in which I recovery the three-dimensionality of original location, but reintepreting it.
Then the path starts from the three-dimensional architecture to arrive at the two-dimensionality of a geometric abstract photography, and then returned again to three-dimensional installations in plexiglass or glass sculptures formed by the geometric elements that made up the photograph.
The result of this change is a different place than the original, but made with his own bricks: another environment, or a new and different person, but always of the same original material.
It is a conceptual circuit in which you can probably gather reminiscences of artists like Malevich, Mondrian, El Lissitsky, Rothko, Peter Halley, but also of psychiatrists as Freud, Jung and others.

Thanks to you both, Paul and Yen-Ting. And please ...note that this is not a composition of images, but really a single image of buildings in the new area in Milan Portanuova!! It is all question of point of photographic shoot!

I really like the composition which creates a result both figurative and abstract and a sense of peeking!
