FINO ALLA FINE DEL MARE

THE PROJECT

"Fino alla fine del Mare" is a Photomaterism project, entirely created at the boat cemetery on the island of Lampedusa. The images are close-ups of boat wrecks, printed in high resolution directly on wood and subsequently resined by hand by the author. The boat, or rather the wreck or what remains of it, photographed in detail, becomes an abstract image thus losing all the load of pain that characterizes it.

Through printing on wood it regains its paternity, but different: it does not return to being a boat, but a pure material form. The application of resin inserts a symbol, that of water intended as an  element from which the boat originally comes. This symbolism recontextualizes the work by bringing it back to its native environment in a different form. This process that runs through the work represents a journey that becomes, in a metaphorical sense, the curatorial theme of the entire project.

THE Photomaterism
PROCESS

The images are close-ups of boat wrecks, printed in high resolution directly on wood and subsequently resined by hand by the author. The boat, or rather the wreck or what remains of it, photographed in detail, becomes an abstract image thus losing all the load of pain that characterizes it.

SNAP

The wreck or what remains of it, photographed in detail, becomes an abstract image thus losing all the load of pain which characterizes it.

RESIN APPLICATION

To finish the work, a layer of resin is then applied to give it a material and realistic effect.

PRINT

The photographic image is imprinted in direct printing on a wooden surface.
