Stefano Rondini is a young
artist photographer, he lives in Rome and since 10 years he works in advertising
photography, in parallel with the very professional part of his passion he carries
out a peculiar artistic research moving through non conventional means of expression.
Advertising’s typical photographic style, aimed at glorifying the object is transposed
and contextualized in a mystical set: common objects are absorbed in a reorganized
and artefact world of glossy and paradoxically oneiric atmospheres.
Differently from his precedent
work, more oriented at protesting against the culture of consuming, this series
of works is a reassessment of some Italian renaissance masterpiece paintings:
religious iconographies of the XIV and VX centuries such as S.Sebastian, S.George
and the Dragon, the Last Supper, are reproduced through the use of every day life
objects. The photographs offer a strong visual impact added with a stunning and
effective emotional dynamic, based on new millennium fears and on the Christian
Jubilee, celebrated in Rome and world-wide.
The original plotter-printed
pictures are completed by beautiful metal frames, created by the artist himself,
are at disposal for exhibitions and sale, and are produced in limited series of
9 copies each.
