In this exhibition by Franco Lippi and Luis Falduti at the Embassy of Argentina in Washington, DC, we use the medium of photography to temporally expose the enigmatic layers of Franco Lippi’s paintings to disclose its hidden messages. The efforts by these two artists is to reenact the complete chain of events in which one painter and a photographer collaborate, creating two separate bodies of work, each from his own point of view and yet, from one referring to the other, allows one to reveal the essence of the other. Art is the unique ability to describe the indescribable, where ideas, color, expression, and representation are elements and tools artists use to create environments that cross space and time, inner and outer worlds, the seen and unseen. Franco Lippi presents a new series of pieces that, with Luis Falduti, is redefining the language of painting and photography, a concept based on the idea of ephemeral color and space treatment where vast and complex compositions from Lippi become realms to be discovered through Falduti’s lens, and in turn create new dimensions between the works of the two of them, traversing between two worlds.
