Age of Innocence

Session

Integrated Design

Description

This series of paintings that will be presented here today is very well acquainted with the political and social conflicts that marked a very important part in European history. They are rather an archaeological investigation created to give the protagonists the chance to experience the level of spectacularisation and glamorous media attention that is clouding the perception of contemporary history. At first glance, cinema paintings remind us an age of innocence, the so-called golden era of Hollywood, we're going to the movies was an all-embracing experience designed to foster dreams, nurture passions and foment romance. A fictional world made of brave men and fascinating women, where heroes and villains are immediately recognizable. By converting these characters into today’s media celebrities, I tried to revisit the past with astuteness, ironic but respectful, thus removing another layer to the already thin line that separates reality and fiction.
