PP Art: Photography Painting Art

What does PP Art mean? It is a fusion between the art of photography and that of painting.

In October 2018 Bruno Paolo Benedetti, photographer, and I,  decided to develop a new artistic flow by fusing our arts into an innovative artistic production that we have named “PP Art”.

Photography Painting Art is the result of a process of manipulation of photos of paintings and digital art photographs. Through the fusion of these two different art products, a brand new artwork is born.

The outcome is an impressive artwork where both the fused visual arts create a new more stunning image where colors and shapes are mixed in an innovative and unique  way.

The resulting abstract images  are made of fluid floating shapes and straight or bended lines, of circles and concentric shapes, of vivid lights and shadows, of allusions to human faces or figures and they are made of bright an soft tones of colors and shades,  giving the watcher many suggestions for her/his imagination and creativity.

The PP Art (Photography Painting Art) fused artworks introduce the observer to an inner celestial world made by sensations, emotions, feelings, by evoking questions and ancestral images with a strong religious inspiration.

My new artistic flow takes shape with the creation of miniature paintings or miniaturart.  What made me start this artistic flow?… Sometimes art isn‘t accessible to all for several reasons. That’s why many people cannot enjoy what art can give:  the essence of colors, the underlying emotions and inner suggestions, the flying of imagination and how it takes form, the vibration of the inner soul and the trigging of new positive feelings…that is….emotions which seem to decline  and disappear in the nowadays society and with the modern lifestyle.

The paintings you find in this collection are made of tempera colors on small size colored cardboards.  They represent abstract impressionistic and figurative modern images with subjects of nature or abstract subjects.

These miniature paintings or miniaturart, are suitable to be located in all kind of big or small interior spaces  and can be easily placed on a table in a frame or hanged on a wall.  Moreover, the materials used made possible the creation of miniature paintings with a different saturation of colors that can easily capture the eyes attention.

The small size of these paintings make these artworks accessible also economically to everybody.

Since childhood much of my free time was dedicated to drawing.  In particular I enjoyed making portraits of my relatives after a family lunch or depicting a natural environment and elements of nature.  My artistic production started therefore as figurative .  Some of the figurative paintings you will find here, realized with oil painting on canvas, date back to the beginning of my artistic career while others, more recent, are realised using also enamel colors and sometimes materials of the nature.

Then, for several years, a conceptual symbolic artistic flow emerged.  This artistic wave that I followed is characterized by the performance of paintings representing abstract figures depicting stylized natural beings, religious archetypes or myths that sometimes draw the viewer’s attention to issues of universal value.  Most of these paintings are marked by high contrasted tones and are realized on a base of black enamel background. Moreover, some of them may be either hanged vertically or horizontally in accordance with the watcher’s point of view.

At a later stage my artistic sensibility turned into an abstract branch with, sometimes, surrealistic intuitions.These artworks may have multiple interpretations according to the viewer’s perspective and experience of life, so that the viewer becomes himself/herself the artist. They may be either hanged vertically or horizontally in accordance with the watcher’s point of view.
Most of these artworks are realized with oil painting on a base of enamel poured or dripped and smeared on canvas with a knife modified by atmospheric agents, with pieces of clotted enamel or materials of the nature.
