|CRISTINA PAVESI (CIT), 2013
Still Alive #2, Web Video
Revisiting the classic genre of still life, inspired by Flemish painting and by the Caravaggio paintings, shapes and colors are enhanced by the light contrasting with the black background. As in paintings subjects are in complete stillness, in videos there is fourth dimension, time, to give further metaphorical depth image. Still life, yes, but alive as ever.
“Still alive #2”. A bouquet of dried roses lose its petals blown away by an improbable wind, defeating the rule of immobility of "still life", suggesting a sense of restless waiting.
