Writer, poet, journalist, Tina Cosmai approaches photography in 2006, reflecting on the metaphysical aspects of the relation man-enviroent. Tina Cosmai’s photographs take the viewer into a world that takes different but complementary aspects: opaline and embracing (Via di Fuga a Mare); dreamy and playfyl (Ludica); alienating and mysterious (Manikins); of definit shapes and sharp shadows (Meriggio); visions through which the artists makes us reflect upon the evolution of multifold feelings and universal concepts reversed into image - from enstrangement to freedon - where an echo to the written word is always present. Photography takes the place of writing to describe, re-create, illustrate a kaleidoscope of sensations and feelings, memories from the past and projections into the future. Written words stems out more precisely in the series La Luna e i Falò, a poignant tribute to Cesare Pavese, in which writing melts with images creating an extremely deep and personal vision of the literary works of this great writer. The exhibitions also features a selection of more intimate and personal photographs taken during the COVID-19 lockdown period, The 40th Day. By using a caravaggesque chiaroscuro, Tina Cosmai crystallizes moments of this forced captivity that has involved all of us. Going back once again to a universal human condition, stressing the capacity of resilience of human nature which characterizes all of Tina Cosmai’s artistic view.
