Metaphors are so well established in everyday language that hardly we can hear them.
‘I blowed my nose in a tissue’ or ‘A drawing that looks real’ or ‘Whistling like a song bird’ …
Have you ever thought how they would look like into the reality of each day?
I decided to transform some of the most common kiwi and italian metaphoric sentences, into imageries.
Widely accepted as form of art, photo manipulation requires skill as well as an active imagination and transforming my own portrait 100 times, has been a real challenge. I was after consistency within all the pieces, so that observer could recognise a theme connection. I focused exclusively on the subject, to create a more dynamic result and I opted for a plain colourful background to pointing it out.
The result is a funny journey into an imaginary world made of ridiculous expressions, colours and surreal creations. The success of the project has been to see the expressions of people in front of the artworks. Observing their genuine laughs and listening their surprised comments was my pay back.
