Each shot is taken in natural light; both sunlight and moonlight. These cannot be governed, and it is exactly this impartiality of light which underlines how his subjects are always treated in the same way: whether they are a bunch of salad, or an antique vase, the light is clear, limpid and sincere. It is a complete pictorial culture which permeates each return. The originality of the view is not shown by potraying rare subjects, but rather by a new, diverse way of observing them. Within Boyer’s mental light there is everything; from the drama of Caravaggio, to the objectivity of Vermeer. In his shots, there is a total and fundamental interpretation.
Andrea Boyer manages to see in advance, the final results of his shot, bringing it closer to his mental time, creating a synthesis of what is seen and heard on the outside, and internalising it. His photographs are a meeting outside of time. In the ‘Nicchie’ series, he portrays household objects, caught in their daily existence, and immortalised. These ennobled objects are shown either in wooden niches; essential, simple and warm, or in the coldness of oxidised copper. In all the subjects, the fundamental element is always Time.
Time is also the main theme of the external series: the singular effort of man to govern nature, fascinating geometries and logical insertions by man, in contrast with the randomness of nature. Exteriors become scenography, either in soft shapes and light, or in dry, almost violent geometries and volumes.
The inauguration will be held on Thursday 6th March 2014, from 6pm to 9pm.
