Italian born artist Giuseppe Mastromatteo graduated from the Accademia di Comunicazione di Milano in Art Direction. He still writes today about the arts, teaches advertising at various significant academic institutions, and teaches and collaborates with the Triennale Museum of Milan in the role of Art Director. Giuseppe’s surrealistic digital photographs on the five senses, appropriately called ‘Indepensense,’ take advantage of the subtlety of digital technology to reproduce humanity in impossible and illusory dimensions. Faces are ripped; hands have eyes; human anatomy is surgically rearranged with no blood flowing in these absurd images. Transfigured bodies, pierced and lacerated do not show any form of violence, but instead pose solemnly in front of the photographer’s lens, beyond any suffering. No expression exists in these faces, there is no tension but rather a sense of timelessness that leaves us open to reflect about the uncertainty of this third millennium. Like Magritte and Man Ray, Mastromatteo intervenes in the interior sense of beauty. The models he chooses for his work bring to the stage classic canons of harmony and equilibrium creating a complex dialectict between fascination and repulsion. Body expressions have always played an important role in life and communication. Most secret emotions can be explained by the use of body language. Giuseppe Mastromatteo has succeded in creating his art by expressing his emotions in an indomitable Italian way.
