NEWS: Douglas Kirkland 2019.

“I am a dreamer with a camera. […] When I was a boy, I remember looking at life as a series of endless and exciting images. I wanted to record them and show them in my way. Photography for me has always been about interpreting people, places and events and I understand the world better looking at it through my camera.”

NANCY BURSON, Composites 2018.

“Nancy Burson is a photographer who works with concepts and a conceptual artist who works with photographs. While it was not Burson’s intention, her fabrications challenged fundamental assumptions about the nature of photography and still do. Unlike a portrait that draws meaning from its connection to a real person, Burson’s pictures are simulacra; forms without substance that put a face on abstract concepts, personalizing the impersonal, and embodying the intangible.”

SANDY SKOGLUND 2015

«I think there exist a contrast between the fantastic aspect – animals seen as cartoons or as fantasies – and reality. Since we, as human begin, consider ourselves the primary form of consciousness existing in nature, I decided to populate my images with animals in order to introduce this alternative awareness into our experience.»

TEUN HOCKS 2016

“My inspiration can be almost everything, and almost nothing. Sometimes the world around me and how to survive daily life can be a source of inspiration. In my images I aim to achieve not so much, offering a mirror sometimes, or gaining a smile, and maybe a good feeling”.

CLARK & POUGNAUD, C’est la Vie 2009

“We call our pictures “vintage digital” or “slow art” because each picture is a slow process hand and home made. We produce approximately 12 portraits per year.  Our images are a mix of influences: poetical realism esthatetic of the cinema, theatre scenography, painting, photography, digital technology… We take the models round make believe miniatures worlds to perform a slice of life in which atmospheres are essentials”.  More…

JERRY UELSMANN, Synchronistic Moments 2011.

“I believe that individual artists can create a reality that is personally more meaningful that the one that is literally given to the eye. I have never made an image that related to a specific dream and I do not keep any sort of journal of dreams. I greatly appreciate the quality of the dreamlike sensibility”. More….

LESLIE KRIMS 2014.

“My work, and that of a few others, helped establish a new direction. What we did displaced traditionalist, activist photography. These things often happen
in the world of art. It is hard to account for taste or fashion. One always pays a dear price for poking fun at the left in American culture…”

LORI NIX, Another Wold 2013.

MARIO CRAVO NETO, The Mystic photo, Paci contemporary gallery, Brescia, 2009.

“Photography for me is a kind of offering which deals with the unknown forces. I can’t really say if I’m a mystical person, but I am sure that something or someone takes us by the hand and direct us to an unknown point in the infinite which I will call destiny”  More…

MATTEO MONTANI, Abbassare al cielo gli occhi, Paci contemporary gallery, Brescia, 2009.

There are signs from below and from above. It is the painting that has the function of interpreting them, changing their fate and bringing them back for us to see. It is the means to render us visionaries, of becoming participants in a magic aiming to become reality”. More…

MICHAL MACKU, The 3D Photography 2013.

“In these images, where individuality is turned into plurality, where the search of individual identity lies between brackets, while reflecting the melting of the individual within an infinite cosmos, ultimately the deepest and truest sense of this research comes to the fore: that giving rise to a parallel world, as unreal as it is full of ties with our own concrete experience.” More…

AMERICA 70. La fotografia tra sogno e realtà 2014.

“Since the early ‘70s several American artists have rewritten the rules of photography and thrown themselves into bold experiments: their intent being no longer that of documenting reality, but of pushing themselves beyond it without denying it, tying up the knots that link together imagery and vision, visible and invisible.”  More…

Paolo Conti Non solo ferro

PAOLO CONTI. Non solo ferro. Opere 1968-2009 – 2009

The work of Paolo Conti is not a job. Even when he speaks of his work, he speaks of metaphor. The artist is like a wise man: he doesn’t exist yet. He guides other people on his direction and animates everything he does with the same intention. The artist creates examples for those who may experience them. These last one might probably be a few at the beginning, but they know the difference between what is and what becomes. More…

LIVING CODES. Miguel Chevalier, Alessandro Capozzo, Alex Dragulescu, 2011

The tile of the exhibition is focused on the life of code, instead of being centered on the simulation of real life and its evolutive dynamics. The importance is given to code as a life form, whole created by man and native of our days.
An alien life form built starting from an imitation of the deep structures of reality and yet characterized by a radical alterity. More…
