Flowers In the Dark, created by Andrea Pozzuoli in 2016, is part of a long-term artistic research on still-life photography, a research that the artist started with It is Not ‘600 (2013) and Decadence Flowers (2015), two different still-life experiments. The photos that belong to this new series are characterized by the black background, against which stand drops of water and flowers with vibrant colors. Every detail vigorously comes up to the surface, ripping the black veil of quietness that wraps every shot. The still-life, a quintessentially Baroque genre, is now re-interpreted under a new and modern light. The stillness of the subject, which often characterized this painting genre and its sub-categories, both in art and photography, is now left aside; Pozzuoli re-interprets it in an independent, fluid and dynamic way. Time is no longer still or crystalized in frames that always look alike; on the contrary, in each frame we see it unravel through the drops of water, the flowers and the petals that float and almost seem to be swimming in the air. Every photo is grounded on a careful work of preparation and research, in order to achieve the perfect synthesis – lively but always well balanced – of every component.
