New Media: Digital, Ink on Paper.
Yogurt Dispersion 15 is a print from the Yogurt Culture series.
The image has been created digitally and then printed on high quality fine art paper.
The series was inspired by a humorous expression among the inhabitants of a secluded place in Upstate New York that says: "If you want culture, you have to buy yogurt". This joke, mentioned by the US artist Louise Pirotta, gave an occasion for a small competition between colleagues living in different countries around the world.
Subsequently, I have developed further the subject with new imagery.
However, aside from the funny beginning, the exhibition is about all those associations, symbol of which is the milk as primordial nutrient and in particular the milk that has been changed by microorganisms: fermentation and transformation, maturation, storage, nutrition, thirst / hunger, feeding new energy - archetypal states that are part of the dynamics of life. In these works, the Yogurt is placed in abstract spaces – the sky or the nothingness - and is freed from any concreteness, which gives it the cosmic dimensions characteristic of myths.
* The series is presented in a virtual exhibition on a special website: https://yogurtculture.weebly.com/
