Inspired by the Golden Age of Dutch painting, Stefania Piccioni tries to recreate the feel of classic still lifes in his photography.
His work is painstakingly assembled from shots of Fruits taken with the same lighting, with each detailed and multi-layered image taking between 2 and 3 hours to put together. “ The trick” is to reveal the rich colours and contrasts and spicy textures without over-lighting the scene . She think is that the truth of objects is more fascinating than any beautified fantasy. Where is the art? It is in the loving observation of truth – with a camera as much as in paint. Look closely at the food and you’ll see how lighting and shadow animate and dramatise the relationships between fruits on the table. The variety of forms and textures – such as the opened red flesh of a pomegranate, or the dusty skin of a grape – are acutely revealed by their juxtapositions.
