In this artwork I wish to depict the vision of a ghost in a rural setting. This image has been realized by means of an in-camera technique: post processing has only been applied to colors and contrast.
Shapes In Nature: Sweet Vision - This image is part of the collection named Shapes In Nature. The photo has been taken by means of a specific technique, which involves a slight movement of the camera during a long exposure shot. As in many of my works, the sense of indefinite and unknown is what fascinates me the most. Here, I want to render the indefinite feel by not giving a clear and detailed representation of what the subject looked like, rather a much more interesting vision. I like to think the viewer has much more space to build their own personal representation of the tree. Also, the motion blur is to me very much like capturing "Time". A tree in autumn on a partly cloudy day can bu a very static view. This capture shows movement on a static element: such a human invention, Time moves in a different way in nature, often invisible to the human eye, rather more visible to a camera's lens.
XIII - Death Of Reason - This image depicts the fall and Death of Reason. The land, the sky, the world are upside down. Gravity seems inverted from the land's perspective. But it actually isn't. The character is still falling downards: universal laws haven't changed. What has changed is her perception of the universe in its entirety. She's reaching for the land of dreams, the sky, where down-to-earth reasoning is to be abandoned. A new cycle is about to start: nothing is ever going to be the same again.
This image is from the collection named Shapes In Nature. I have always been in love with nature. But I soon realized that the camera couldn't show what my eyes saw. This image and its painterly look better represent my mood, emotions and attitude towards natural elements and scenes. The sense of the Unknown, so often presented in literature, is here depicted by means of the fog in the background, so as to cover, hide what's behind, what's around. Indeed, it is really not important what's behind or around the subject, but the sole fact of not knowing plays such a lovely music to my ears.
In this scene I saw the amazing, profound connection established by Nature, within Nature: a tree, dead and dry, fallen into a pond, now all wet and cold, but still partly floating, some branches out of the water as if they were calling for help or trying to crawl. Dead Nature comes alive in so many details and scenese, hidden in everyone's vicinity.
Reflections of Beauty: The Dark Side Of Me II - In this shot I envisioned a character looking at her "other side". Vanity and beauty are the core, but from their dark, negative, threatening perspective. The character is pondering, looking at the immense unknown of her psyche, holding a mirror behind her so as to set aside the needs of her self-centered vain part, to ponder on what doesn't look as beautiful: isolation and addiction to narcissistic constant confirmation of her own looks. I tried to convey her sad mood by means of color and darkness, as well as the cloudy sky.
In this artwork I wanted to put together kindred feelings and emotions from my love for nature and the overwhelmingly melancholic sweet scent on a summer evening in the countryside, while wandering on a lonely path lost in the deep green by a lake or in meadows surrounded by hazy hills.
00186 - Cloudy Afternoon At A Pond - This scene depicts an area from Torbiere di Franciacorta. The sky was covered, the sun was setting, the fog covered all the smallest details and the resulting atmosphere was magical.
