I find Olivo Barbieri’s work very fascinating. The artist’s work lies somewhere between photography and painting, challenging the very perception of what separates two-dimensional from that of three-dimensional. There is not any explanation nor description for the production of this series, (un)fortunately. This series of work, named “site specific”, is landscape work over the years of travelling, as one can tell from the year indicated on each piece’s individual title. It is definitely entreating to see seemingly flat buildings strictly imposed against a photographical perspective. As I ponder in attempt to figure out the artist’s technique, it seems they are less and less photographic like. (especially given the strangely vibrant colours with the lack of shadow weights no?) I must say Barbieri’s work keeps me going back again and again.
