Vanitas VII ( The double )
Exclusive Limited Edition of 1/1 ......( plus I reserve one Artist proof printed not for sale but only for expo. )
This piece makes part of an ongoing series of artworks called "Recycled" which I´ve started producing at the end of 2017.
In this series I revisit old masterpieces (mostly from Renaissance until Neoclassicism ) to extract personages or sceneries...modifying and mixing them (via... Digital Photographic Manipulation) and this way creating new possibilities in an unexploited context.
To this purpose I also introduced what I consider "the magical enigma" of Surrealism and mixed it with a small dose of Pop Art`s contemporary irreverance.
All this mixture between different Art periods and technics intents to work catalysing the observer to travel within his own visual memories (from Art History) searching for the originals and then recycling them with a whole new interpretation.
Through all this process the viewer becomes my accomplice.
