The Italian-born artist, Maurizio Anzeri shows us the way to the infinite extensions of a photograph.
Photographs with their own storytelling; a narrative full of unpredictability, emotions and surprise; a three dimensional reality of eerie-fantastic photo-sculptures.
“As long as something creates a reaction it’s alive…”
A career of an off-beaten path focusing on the revelation of extraordinarily beautiful portraits “scooped out” by high street photographs from the mid 20th century.
The exploration of the persona through a three dimensional reality is aiming to celebrate the present where the embroidered characters escape their present form; part of them is still there whilst another part becomes something else, someone else.
A one time vintage photo seemingly trapped in a “space”, enters our reality,“carrying” an enigmatic and mysterious feel to it.
A direct sewing that embellishes his “protagonists” with hand-made embroideries as if they are high fashion costumes.
Through his creative attempt to track and reinterpret his subjects, Maurizio Anzeri becomes part of the whole process developing an intimate relationship with each depicted character.
A trust leading to a soul disclosure: are you ready to whisper your thoughts and tell your stories?
