Artist Wanted just announced the winner of the EXPOSURE contest which thousands of people all over the world submitted to and I wanted to share his work. His name is Andrea Galvani from Milan, Italy and his work is nothing short of brilliant. A clip of his statement is below followed by some of his winning images. I absolutely love the horse portraits!
“I work for weeks in an area. The process involves camping out, building temporary structures, shifting animals, people and physically intervening the space. In fact, I feel that I need to get close to the land, to slowly repossess it in order to then violate it, turn it on it’s head using different materials including smoke, mirrors, balloons, images, fragments. I’m trying to reactivate the visual mechanisms through real actions. The relationship with experience, risk, atmospheric phenomenon and physical limitations of means as well as the site in which I work, are all deciding factors in the development of my projects. My research often takes on a scientific aspect, focusing attention on the invisible mechanisms that construct and transform life.”
