About the work

About the work

Series: Paisagem

Within “Paisagem A/B”, we are placed in Minelli’s in-between world. The reflection of clouds mirrored in the car window takes you higher, almost above ground as it converses with the direct pink physicality of the image transfers of plants to the left. Minelli cleverly puts the viewer within his liminal spaces, painting negatively, seeking only outlines. He deliberately makes nature his own and offers it a new value.

“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
