Inspired by the house and studio spaces of Luis Barragan, and Ricardo Bofill’s La Muralla Roja, Massimo Colonna’s intriguing photographs provide an arena for uncanny gravitational movement. Natural shadows are heightened by their place within the compositions; mirroring and reflecting the wider structures.
Colonna’s ( n o n ) g r a v i t à series is a beautiful reflection upon serenity and contemporary image-making; digitally enhanced photographs offer a journey into a pastel utopia, where inanimate products become active characters within the everyday.
Set against linear, minimalistic architecture, balls, balloons, plastic bags and paper planes are transfixed in a moment of stillness. As the artist notes: “The objects are immortalised when they don’t gravitate.”
