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 â€œPremio Celeste Italiaâ€ in 2010: shortlisted in Donkey Art Prize 2012. He is represented in The Netherlands by gallery â€œChiefs&Spiritsâ€ in The Hague. ... See more See less
