Giovanni Lunardi ART
My artistic photographic work started at the end of the 70’s. Since the beginning my art has been focused on obtaining a three dimensional experience from otherwise two dimensional images.
I worked many years in the dark room, cutting and curling innocent black and white prints that did not deserve to be treated this way. Finally, I learned the artistic language and I began working on a series called 3D. I finally had found my way and ever since I have been creating works of art with much satisfaction.
3D is a series of several pieces that use different techniques over many years.
The cuts through the images, let us search a world beyond the limits of a photographic picture. The objects add more depth to the photos – shadows, movement, and color which give insight and life to the images. The work is then confined by thick shadow boxes which create a separate dimension for the art to live in a dimension with its own constraints, light, colors and atmosphere.
In the past few years, my work has expanded in a new direction. “Explosion” is a project that pushed me to search in each piece a strong and constant movement realized with exploded photographs overlaid one on top of the other. The explosion can be the result of many factors: speed, sound, wind, …
The subject for the Explosion series are very diverse in nature: people, vehicles or objects. The observer is caught by the movement of the images bound by dark shadowboxes that confine the art in a way to keep it from escaping.
