Carlo Dorta Artist Bio:

Carlo D'Orta (Florence, Italy, 1955). Artist. Photography and Installation. Lives and works in Rome. He has pursued his passion for photography for 40 years. From 2003 to 2010 he attended advanced painting classes at the Rome University of Fine Arts (RUFA) and devoted himself to the study of contemporary art. As a result, his photographic perspective undergoes a radical change. He abandons the documentary approach and try shots that tend towards abstraction, or tinged with a metaphysical/surrealist vision. The color sensitivity gained during the training gives his photographs a strong painting characterization, sometimes because of limited interventions in post-production on lights and colors. He favors Architecture - focusing on de-contextualization of the details and the deformation produced by the reflection - and Dance. To the Architecture he dedicates first series "Berlin: White, Grey, Light" and "Vibrations" (in which it is clear the influence of futuristic vision), and later, from 2012, the series "Biocities" and "Geometries Still Life "(where instead there is a strong reminiscence of Cubism, Constructivism and moving color fields). In 2013 also starts the series "(Re)FineArt" aiming at a metaphysical vision of the architecture of large industrial complexes and whose title is a deliberate and provocative pun, combining the concept of art with that of one of the productions polluting what it is refining. To the Dance he approaches instead during his experience, from 2012, as component of the Board of National Academy of Dance. Born here the photographic series "Liquidance", where the focus is also often directed at particular decontextualized, shadows, vibration movement. In the last two years his research knows more strong evolutions arriving to the series titled "(De)Compositions". Here D'Orta, thanks to the shoot position and zoom, realise a strong compression of perspective and transformed landscapes of contemporary architecture in abstract geometries in which three-dimensional depth disappears. But then, using the geometric fragments that make up these photographs, she creates installations in plexiglass and glass sculptures in which recovers, but in a new way, the three-dimensionality of the original architecture. This is a trip from the three-dimensional architecture to the two-dimensionality of a geometric abstraction and then again to the three-dimensionality of sculpture and installations formed by the geo Selected Awards 2015 - Malamegi Foundations Art Contest - Shortlisted 2013 - Le Journal de la Photographie - Week End Portfolio 2013 06 08 - Shortlisted by Howard Greenberg (New York Art Dealer and Gallerist) 2012 - Sony World Photo Award 2012 - Sony World Photo Organisation - Shortlisted in "Professional Conceptual Photography" category 2012 - Murano Glass Prize 2012 - Abate Zanetti Glass High School (Venise) - Winner as photo-designer in "Vetrofusione" category 2012 - Combat Prize 2012 - Blob Art Cultural Association - Finalist 2010 - Celeste Prize 2010 - Celeste Cultural Association - On line vote Winner 2009 - Mondadori Art Prize 2009 - Shortlisted Contacts www.carlodortaarte.it Gallery ROMBERG Arte Contemporanea www.romberg.it / [email protected]
