There are some amazing and unusual landscapes on the walls of our cities… They are skies and seas of paper. We can see them in macro photographs of disfigured advertising posters. In this photogallery I have gathered some of the macro images I took walking along the streets of different cities, from  outdoor billboards.  The pictures are part of LaceR/Actions”, a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, crevices, scratches and urban and industrial signs and tokens (I’ve collected so far more than 100.000 photos…).

Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles, re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and disfigured posters and natural cracks, corrosions and scratches give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matters decompositions. They’re not paintings…They’re Lacer/actions!

There are some amazing and original landscapes on the walls of our cities… They are skies and seas of paper we can see in macro photographs of disfigured advertising posters. In this photogallery I have gathered some of the macro images I took walking along the streets of diffrent cities. They’re macro and abstract photos of a decomposed publicity poster I saw on outdoor billboards.  The pictures are part of LaceR/Actions”, a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, crevices, scratches and urban and industrial signs and tokens (I’ve collected so far more than 100.000 photos…).

ON “ACS” MAGAZINE 26 PAGES ABOUT THE NEW WONDERFUL ROOMS AT THE UFFIZI GALLERY IN FLORENCE

 

 

ACS magazine, founded in Chicago (USA) 3 years ago by Renèe LaVerné Rose, in the new September/October issue dedicates 26 pages to the Uffizi Galleries (Florence, Italy) with photos and texts on the new structure given to the rooms that collect the greatest masterpieces of the Renaissance.

The story, that I wrote esclusively for ACS magazine, is accompanied by a series of beautiful images documenting the great innovations made at the Uffizi during the last year. The article (Title: “The beauty of art is also in the way we show it”) celebrates not only the great Italian art, but also the attention that the Uffizi Galleries, with its director Eike Schmidt, have given to the reorganization of the spaces dedicated to Leonardo da Vinci, Caravaggio, Raffaello and Michelangelo Buonarroti.

With this special issue, the ACS magazine celebrates its third anniversary and the great creativity of its founder, Renèe LaVerné Rose, who from Chicago promotes art all over the world. Below is the link to the online magazine: by clicking on it you will be immediately brought to page 62, where the special story begins on the Uffizi.
