Turismo superficial PF No. 6

Details:Ricardo Gonzalez about his collection: “ ‘Souvenir de no-lugar’ is inspired by the concept of ‘no-lugar’ (‘non-place’), a term coined by the anthropologist Marc Augé in his 1993 book Non places. Spaces of anonymity. Anthropology of modernity; where he refers to non-places as transitory places, such as highways, hotel rooms, supermarkets ... spaces that ultimately provide a service to the inhabitant of the modern world. Parting from this premise, I take pictures of these places during my travels. Later in my studio, I deconstruct the images during the painting process, abstracting the subject through the use of patterns that refer to the mechanical repetition that involves these places, suggesting that the transitory character of theses places drives to an unconscious automatism. If such non-places serve us to reach our destination, to regain our souvenir or memento, now the medium itself (the transitory places) becomes the destination or the purpose or the message; as Marshall McLuhan would say, itself is becoming the souvenir. From this new understanding, the roles are reversed; the painting in itself is now established as a non-place, through which paradoxically it is shed of its long tradition, eluding its anguished nature to return to reality with a revived new look, recording, assimilating and expressing the changes of contemporary human life, by providing a service to it." Ricardo's paintings are made with acrylic, oil paint and enamel on canvas or wood on canvas. Each is signed by the artist and includes a certificate of authenticity. All artworks are shipped directly from the artist and are in perfect condition.Read more

Fun Fair 12

Details:Valentin Russo: “I’m interested in relationship between photography and painting. I notice that one essential difference between these is time: Photographs are created usually in fractions of seconds whereas paintings take much more time. Therefore, I tried to experiment by slowing down the process of taking a photo to the maximum. I don’t use a tripod so that my hand movements act on the photo, like a painter acts on his painting. In this approach, I try to reclaim physical photography, seen as an automatic process, and to offer another vision than the photographic objective truth. In that concern, I was inspired by the works of Ernst Haas “Motion”, and John Batho particularly the bright colour and movement in "Maneges" (Merry-go-round) series. I was also inspired by the paintings of Gerhard Richter, the futurism paintings of Luigi Russolo and the colors theory of Kandinsky. In the long exposure time, I like the randomness, blending shapes and colors and blurred vision between real and fiction. I enjoy abstracting every day scenes, something which the camera, which usually distorts objects in movement, is particularly suited for. White is very present in my composition. It reminds the white canvas and emphasizes on colors which appear like touches of paint, removing the limits between painting and photography.” Limited edition of photographs made with Giclée print with pigmented inks on Fine Art Hahnemühle photo rag paper (308 gr), available in two sizes. All photographs are mounted by the artist on a black aluminum frame, with Plexiglas, without passe-partout. Each photograph is signed and numbered by the artist, comes with a certificate of authenticity and will be printed on demand. Available sizes: S: 30cm x 20cm (Limited Edition of 30) Framed Size: 32cm x 22cm M: 50cm x 33cm (Limited Edition of 20) Framed Size: 52cm x 35cmRead more
