Domenico Foschi

Domenico, an Italian artist-photographer living and working in California has been working increasingly with advanced toning techniques on traditonal photographic media. The hallmarks of his work are formal in nature. Sensitivity to depth (real or implied), texture and haptic relationship to the subject matter photographed. The exploration into some of his later toning work, as seen in this show - demonstrates a new interest in 'surface tension' - that is to say, the tension created by the relationship of pictorial surface and the viewer's awareness of it - and the illusion of subject matter depicted.

His works are held in private collections in North America and Europe.


"Every artist’s work is the evidence of a search, my images are testimonials of rare moments when I am as close as I can be to the manifestation of Beauty. Beauty here intended as the Universal value, which reveals interconnectedness in all things. It is also a search for what I call Silence: the sound of which all things resonate. The simplicity of my compositions and choice of tonalities are intended to help the viewer in getting absorbed in the scene and hopefully experience the image through other sensory levels. My life experiences act as filters determining my subject matter and the results often show a found past and in some cases roads yet to be explored. Out of focus areas carry an important weight in my work: they are the equivalent in poetry of reading between the lines, they open the doors to an unknown imagery, where shapes, although still being vaguely familiar, challenge and at the same time lure us to a softer and exciting world."
