OLIVO BARBIERI
[b. 1954] Italian artist and photographer of urban environments
I see the world as a temporary site-specific installation, structures, infrastructures, the foundation of our sense of belonging and our identity, seen from afar, as a great scale model: the city as an avatar of itself. - Olivo Barbieri

I wanted to represent the world as a temporary art installation continuously changing. I wanted to consider it unreal and unfinished, judge and transform it, a possibility that only art gives us. - Olivo Barbieri

I am no longer interested in seeing and knowing everything all at once in my work. Technically I select the area of focus and if it’s possible I try to make an amalgamation of every shape and color in the picture so that it acquires a circular movement: from representation to abstraction, from life to death, and vice-versa. - Olivo Barbieri
