Italian photographer Andrea Cicala Pozzuoli creates works in which digital photography is inspired by an era when art had just one meaning: savoir-faire. This is an era all of us recall for its formal perfection, harmony and academic balance, attention to every chromatic composition, and the suspended time of still lifes bearing the greatest optical truths, revealed by their warm, deep and natural luminism.
It is not '600: contemporary still lifes
In the series titled It is not '600 (featured in the gallery at the top of the page) the artist focuses on still lifes using different kinds of food and ingredients. Each image is the outcome of a complex process: it is initially drawn and made into a sketch defining the materials, colors, and proportions, followed by the phase of research into material.
