Artisti ’22


Now in its 4th Edition, the International Yearbook of Contemporary Art
“Artists ’22” constitutes a fundamental point of reference for collecting contemporary.

The artistic committee, composed of Vittorio Sgarbi, Emanuele Beluffi, Luca Beatrice, Angelo Crespi, Sandro Serradifalco, and Edoardo Sylos Labini, chose my works, along with those of 1000 other artists working in Italy.

Esserci è VALORE,
Esserci è SUCCESSO

My work

I was present  with three my photos.

Description of the photos

Title of the photo 1:
Frutti autunnali

Photo description:
The image belongs to my “Food and Drink Still Life” project.
The technique behind this project is to highlight the subject in color, detached from the black/white background.
This composition aims to recreate a nineteenth-century setting, using light reminiscent of Flemish paintings.

In this digital photograph by Maurizio Staffetta echoes the charm of seventeenth-century still lifes, especially Italian ones, but here there are neither skulls nor musical instruments, but the fruits of autumn (and thus something even approaching death), a huge book that is perhaps a Bible, on a very elegant black cloth.
The light is metaphysical as in Caravaggio’s The Calling of St. Matthew: it seems to come from an impossible point.
It is the moment that flees.
Emanuele Beluffi

Title of the photo 2:
Reputare bibens

Photo description:
The image belongs to my “Food and Drink Still Life” project.
The lighting technique, which distinguishes most of my artistic production, based on strong contrasts between lights and shadows and inspired by that characteristic of Caravaggio’s paintings, in this case is used to highlight the flow of wine in the glass.

Title of the photo 3:
Torino: Mole Antonelliana

Photo description:
The image belongs to my project “Different visions of a city – An alternative reading”.
This project, started in 2014, but in continuous evolution, tends to suggest a different way to interpret the images of our cities.
In this case, the top of this well-known building, despite having a statue from the gardens of the royal palace in the foreground, is nevertheless immediately recognizable to the eye of the observer.
