Inloco presents “Paisagem”, a series created in 2020 by Italian contemporary artist, Filippo Minelli.
In this collection, Minelli transfers natural elements from landscapes gathered from the Portuguese–Spanish border where he resides, and transfers the materials onto paper and canvas. The natural transfers, juxtaposing next to photographic imagery portraying urban scenes that have experienced human touch, contrast and converse together. Creating a liminal space that Minelli loves to investigate within his practice. “Paisagem”, the Portuguese term for “landscape” is both a political and an aesthetic comment on contemporary landscape, Minelli’s main source of inspiration. Minelli asks the viewer to look again at the everyday items we’re likely to ignore.
