ZOOM – STILL LIFE IN FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY

The creativity of still life art in the new issue of Zoom magazine n. 254

“From food photography to the needs of social media, the art of still life has been one of the most explored genres in photography in recent years. However, in fine art photography, still life has quite distant origins, from Daguerre to Henry Fox Talbot to begin with, followed by the great Edward Weston, Irving Penn….

A still life image creates a special relationship between the artist and the viewer with the objects portrayed, objects that are immobile and seemingly lifeless, yet capable of transmitting meaning and evoking sensations. The sense of alienation from the context creates a direct involvement with the work, the result being that the distance between the work and the viewer is truly minimal. This aspect is much appreciated by collectors who purchase a work because they love it (and not necessarily as an investment) — because of the way it involves them.

In fine art photography, still life is even more profoundly significant than commercial still life which essentially requires mastery of photographic technique and compositional skill. In fine art, still life becomes the personal expression of the photographer’s creativity which takes advantage of composition, lighting and color to express a concept and an emotional state.”

Personal Structures – Venice Art Biennale 2017

PERSONAL STRUCTURES

“In the context of the Venice Art Biennale 2017, the GAA Foundation presents the exhibition “PERSONAL STRUCTURES – open borders”. The exhibition is hosted and supported by the European Cultural Centre in two of its prestigious Palazzo’s in the centre of Venice -Palazzo Bembo and Palazzo Mora- and the Giardini Marinaressa.

The exhibition shows an extensive combination of internationally established artists and artists whose works are less well-known. A cross-section of what can be seen as contemporary art today. The selected artists come from many different parts of the world, different cultures resulting in very different artworks. Visually, the artworks may appear very different, but all artists present their own subjective, personal expression of their reflection on the concepts Time, Space and Existence.

The exhibition mainly presents recent artworks by living artists, either site-specific, specially made for this exhibition, or taken from the existing collection of the artist. Some rooms in the palazzos are dedicated to the presentation of a single artist, while other rooms will present a combination of projects and works. Strong statements give each of the rooms a very specific character. The exhibition features a broad variety of artistic media; video, sculptures, paintings, drawings, photos and installations. Since the more than 200 participating artists originate from very diverse cultures representing over 40 countries and are also of very different age, the topics Time – Space – Existence are highlighted from unusual, very personal points of view.

The GAA Foundation’s exhibition “PERSONAL STRUCTURES – open borders” shows the commonness and differences between Europeans in dialogue with works of non-Europeans. In addition, the exhibition stimulates a more conscious relationship from the spectator towards his daily surrounding aiming to increase the awareness of their own personal Existence as human beings influenced by a specific Culture within Time and Space.”
