Perhaps for that his last name as a prelude to distant cultures and Eastern philosophies , but Marco Zen is definitely an artist who is interested above all the design aspects , conceptual – and partly spiritual – rather than material expressly and manually making art .

With his body of work, ” Shadows, actually the reverse – negative reality ” seeks to create objects, people , shapes and materials that interact symbiotically with light, shadow become . And, under this new guise , are revealed to us through a new identity transfigured original but because it is self – genetics. This path comes from the need of the author to find an alter-ego to its presence in the world and does so by observing the shadows, which are just a projection of something already exists but that continues to transform giving rise to new admissions and new images. The photograph is by Marco Zen , like anyone uses this medium as the bottom artistic research tool , a way to participate in the birth of something personal and at the same time universal . Just as the act of seeing is an act of selection of reality to create other visions . And that Zen is a metaphor for life that he is investigating and which , with great sensitivity , relates knowing that it continually gives us and resumes something, fills and empties us in a moment. From a technical perspective , Zen sweeps continuously from analog to digital, both in the recovery phase than in the print testimony that for him the machine Camera is just a tool to get somewhere . Sometimes , even , without even challenge it. However, his images are always the result of visions, so to speak, took place “live” . There is no post- viewing in his work. A Zen Marco is not interested intervene through digital manipulation on the content of his photographs , which is where many of the his generation stumble too often giving rise to a mere empty application aesthetics, but he has skillfully managed to dose. To know each other better , to bring out lights and shadows of his own universe . In a beautiful book called Palomar, Italo Calvino wrote diseguito : ” We can not know anything outside ourselves climbing over ourselves. The universe is the mirror in which we can contemplate only what we have learned about in us. ” And I think these words can ideally synthesize the thought of Marco Zen , a young and curious explorer of the soul.
