Afterglow : Vik Muniz: Pictures of Ruins - Bilingual by Luca Massimo Barbero (Hardcover)
About this item
A project specially conceived by the artist, inspired by the masterpieces of the Cini Collection in Venice. An homage to Venice, Muniz’s project includes a series of completely new photos inspired by the old masters of the Cini Collection, paintings by the likes of Francesco Guardi, Dosso Dossi, and Canaletto. The artist revisits the theme of the capriccio in a contemporary key, simulating the brushstrokes with cuttings of illustrations from books on the history of art, carefully selected not only for their colors but also for the images they contain. Continuing the tradition of the artists of the 17th and 18th centuries, Muniz has rearranged these elements in a creative way, constructing new images that, through an interplay of allusions and quotations, intrigue and fascinate.
