About the work

About the work

Series: Paisagem

Like “Paisagem A/D”, Minelli opts for vibrant natural colours found in flowers to emphasise the transitional space he constructs. Yet, in this artwork, the vivid hues are juxtaposed with the materiality of the handmade vase captured in the photograph, creating a tangible contrast accentuated by the vertical arrangement of stacked images. The effect is heightened by the seamless continuation of mark-making from the pink colour and texture above.

“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
