‘GLAZED’ BY URSULA PERSIANI: STILL LIFE COMES ALIVE
Call them still. Those baskets of fruit and vegetables from the end of the 16th century which we know as “still life” are more alive than ever. They were resuscitated by Italian photographer Ursula Persiani by mixing color, photography and design into project “Glazed”.
No traditional painting – on canvas at least – and no representation of the transience of life. Ursula places freshly glazed objects on recycled plastic vases made by Alecci and Di Paola, which turn the composition into a synergy of different disciplines, one complementary to the other.
In a time dominated by the aesthetic of desaturated photography with rough contrasts and incisive borders, with this series Ursula offers a technical style, a sober operation of post-production based on a clear-cut creative process.
