Description

For his newest body of works, Welcome to Gransasso, the artist departs from his past technique of using images taken from the internet which he converts into unique pieces, choosing instead to take his own photographs of the mountains where he grew up. After drawing the photographs with graphite, Stampone inputs the original images in photoshop in order to obtain the numerical references of the Pantone colours present in his own snapshots. As industrial colours which are created to mimic nature, they are then overlayed onto images of nature to confuse the boundaries between natural and artificial elements.
