Visual emotions; Innocence by Claudio Allia

Since a long time tried to imagine how to create a series of images expressing in a provocative way the childhood's innocence in contrapposition with life brutality inspired by the lovely passage from Arthur Schopenauer.

I love to feed my mind and my soul with audio/visual emotions and synesthetic perceptions and my favourite aspiration is to be able to solicit the viewer in my photographs through a personal imaginative and/or meditative journey, which may reveal sometimes the sad awareness of our innumerable weaknesses and imperfections.

I experiment a mental and emotional involvement that sometimes ends up revealing within a few hours or even after months of research; that’s why my approach with photographic works, can provide various levels of interpretation and transfiguration, levels of expression and communication which in my views may evolve through the use of simple symbolisms up to a complex plot of metaphors and surreal paroxysms. As well sometimes the surrounding reality is capturing me in a simple but intriguing way. I love to imagine myself as a tipsy tightrope walker, who staggering travels on the thin line which separates the real from surreal.” [Official Website]

INNOCENCE

Since a long time tried to imagine how to create a series of images expressing in a provocative way the childhood’s innocence in contrapposition with life brutality inspired by the lovely passage from Arthur Schopenauer

“…there are times when children might seem like innocent prisoners , condemned, not to death, but to life and as yet all unconscious of what their sentence means…”

One day this dream became real thanks to a new friend of mine working as mining engineer in one of the biggest basalt’s caves here in Sicily. I scheduled a day time in the main large area in front of the basalt wall to shoot some children and the “dust cleaner” of the final shot as in my original idea had to be the foregrounds of the photos and after a couple of weeks I came back to the cave at the same day time to capture in a sequence of images the wall explosion and collapsing After that I worked on the photomontage of the two steps of my project.

Turin; You Do Not See by Riccardo Surace

Turin; You Do Not See by Riccardo Surace

The project titled What You Do Not See, Unordinary tells the story of the City of Turin, my city, seen through the eyes of passersby. All photographs have been captured with a long exposure technique; in other words, I mixed then history of the city with my own history, my life experience. In fact, after five years spent fighting a disease, my artistic purpose is primarily that of representing the all too familiar feeling when, as a young man wandering through the city, one feels invisible, and yet still he is thoroughly involved in its daily frenzy.
Fragments by Anne-Marie Giroux.

Fragments by Anne-Marie Giroux.

Fragments is a project within a project. Since 2020, I have been working on an installation project entitled Drifts Drifting Phase II which will be presented at Espace Produit Rien in Montréal in April 2023. The installation proposes a questioning of human and artistic drift, theme that I have been exploring since 2014. Adopting a critical and mocking approach on the relevance of the very essence of the art object, I also question the relevance of being an artist, and particularly, the relevance of being a woman artist.
