About Simone Rosti

 
 
  • Biography

    I never conceived shooting as a technical exercise where everything was balanced in search of perfection. Simply it wasn’t my purpose. Conversely I found in imperfection and movement the key to my expression. Later I started stripping the shots, to make them more evocative, more extreme, more direct. Here I focused my research, where I found my sense of art, working on subtraction of light, on scarification, on the creation of contrasts, using monochromes, researching geometries. My "white canvas" has become the moving shots of roads, bridges, tunnels, preferably at night, in extreme weather conditions, with rain and fog. The more these contexts are irregular and reproduced imperfectly, the more my “white canvas” becomes valuable and full of items which project me and the viewer into a plastic dimension of unreality. Why there? Because there I've discovered a dimension that combines relaxation and alienation, a sort of comfort zone where that precarious balance that is the base of the complicated craft of existence seems to emerge. The purpose of my work is to reconcile frustration and harmony in a sort of limbo, of suspension, of indefinite, leaving the viewer with the burden to respond. For me Art is an expressive medium.

    In my artworks there is always a street, because street is a symbolic place of transit, of transition, of passage, of thoughts, of dreams, of illusions, of ears, of loneliness, in suspension towards our mysteries. This is the reason why time is frozen in my work without any connection with the world, outside of any context, without any visible place to reach. The streets simply vanish into darkness.
