About the work

About the work

Series: Paisagem

In “Paisagem A/S”, Filippo Minelli uses his distinctive pairing of photography and direct transfers of plant material to create juxtaposing imagery and colour pairing. Concrete roads and bicycle lanes direct the eye into the sea blue horizon, splitting the image in two, collaging the land and the sea. Whilst the whisper of clouds echo the physical patterning of the vertical stripe next to it.

“All of these works were created at the border between Portugal and Spain, where my studio is located. Many of the photos are captured within the studio, around its vicinity, or directly from it. I utilize flowers and weeds sourced from the roads along the border, as well as other simple everyday materials. I apply them onto photo paper using a spraying technique, akin to analog photo printing where you project a negative onto the paper.

The photos taken outside of the studio area typically depict transitional spaces, such as outskirts of cities, borders, and other limits. They serve as visual narratives of these locations, telling stories about the void present in these suspended areas.” — Filippo Minelli
