VISUAL ARTIST

"I focus on communicating through my photography and design an iconoclastic point of view that is not literal"

Richard Conti

Richard Conti is a Venezuelan-Italian visual artist and creative director based in Miami. In his pursue of art, Richard continuously pushes the limits of creativity. In Conti’s new series Geometry of Life, each of the 225 photograph that make up each work complements each other and coexists organically in space. In his works, circles are geometric shapes that come mainly from natural universes, while squares are forms imagined and created mainly by man. The interplay of his photographic skills, detailed craftsmanship and his passion for the use of light and its effect on color, generate the tri-dimensionality, minimalism and enigmatic feeling the spectator experiences while engaging with his work.

Artist Statement

-

“I focus on communicating through my photography and design an iconoclastic point of view that is not literal, as it involves the framing and composition of the images. When capturing each image, I sketch and play with the elements that I get through my lens metamorphosing them into unique permutations.

 

My passion for architecture and symmetry has given me the vision to find a new meaning in everyday forms, thus conveying artistic expressions that are part of me. With this series, Geometry of Life, I stopped to appreciate the details, to ponder the stills, often ignored; I stopped to play with the possibilities of familiar materials, colors and light forms that transform each of our moments and that without us even realizing it, take part in the film of each of our lives.”
