Sourcing her inspiration in the painting of the old masters of the 14th to 17th centuries, such as Da Vinci, Raphael, Rembrandt, or Vermeer, Romina Ressia composes her photographs like a painter constructs a painting. Through the precise study of compositions and settings, she appropriates the codes of representation of yesteryear. She nonetheless distinguishes her work through a highly contemporary and personal approach, by integrating staged elements from everyday life into her photographs that conspicuously disrupt our reading of them. Considering photography as a unique means of expression, the artist raises questions of a social and behavioural nature by combining the past and the present in a surprising and creative way.Tired is a photograph inspired by the ordinary lives of people in the Renaissance period: ?We are used to seeing in paintings the way in which people from the upper classes posed to have their portrait taken. The idea here is to represent them at work, going simply about their everyday lives.?
