Contini Art Gallery present Stories of People and Things, an important solo exhibition dedicated to the artist Paolo Vegas in its Cortina d’Ampezzo location. The exhibition showcases a selection of photographic works pertaining to diverse series realized by the artist in the last ten years that propose to the viewer a captivating digital composition characterized by brilliant and saturated colors; a visual expression that clearly taps into the expressive universe of advertising communication. The artist in fact, began his formation during the nineties in Milan as an advertising photographer through important collaborations (with names such as Giovanni Gastel, Giac Casale and Joe Oppedisano). He utilizes graphic and chromatic expedients in his works precisely as linguistic registers of publicity, inserting them into a tradition of artists that have contributed to enrich the mutual dialogue between advertising and visual arts. The irreverent poetics of Paolo Vegas, often baroque and without a doubt ironic, invites us to reflect on the infinite reproducibility of digital images and on the continuing marked permeation between real and artificial in today’s society.
