The artist

Mario Rossi was born in Naples (Italy) and now lives in Rome that considers a point of departure and return for each phase of his life.It is involved in photography since the late seventies years and gradually ceased to carry out this form to the descriptive function related to travel and to his studies in architecture, supporting the need for deeper search for a language to identify with. His point of view on photography undoubtedly reflects a pictorial view of space derived from the interest for the modern tradition of the abstract-figurative 'isms'of the artistic avant-garde of the early twentieth century. Mario Rossi intends the photography as a kind of existential therapy, research-oriented to formal relations between the fundamental elements that constitute the knowledge (the plan, lines, color) and which places man at the center of a space made of obsessive geometric patterns. He has exhibited in several galleries in Rome, Milan, New York and Amsterdam: has won awards such as the “Premio Celeste Italia” in 2010: shortlisted in Donkey Art Prize 2012. He is represented in The Netherlands by gallery “Chiefs&Spirits” in The Hague.  ... See more See less

About the artwork

Klaus Leidorf owes the title of ?aerial archaeologist? to over two decades of flights aboard his Cessna 172, a touristic airplane that he flies himself and that has enabled him to photograph human remains within the Bavarian natural environment from the air. ?When I take the plane and I see the world from above, I?m no longer concerned about petty things. I?m calm,? he explains. Like Yann Arthus-Bertrand, the artist observes the Earth from a surprising angle, except that his landscapes reflect a surrealistic world, owing to the use of perspective and shifts in scale. Whether assembled in the grandstands of a football stadium or in the water of a public swimming pool, people appear minute. Klaus Leidorf takes to the skies to take stock of how small our species really is, in the face of the immensity of the world.
