Romina Ressia first solo exhibition at the prestigious contemporary gallery HOFA in Central London.
Portraits portrayed in the classic style with references from artist such as
Da Vinci, Rembrandt and Velazquez. Ressia adopts the simplistic narrative of Flemish realism, no background confusion or ostentatious displays of wealth.
The striking presence of mundane modern objects, however sit comfortably in a juxtaposition between the classic naturalism and beauty of youth, and the mass reproduction of modern pop culture objects.
Romina Ressia achieves the quality of photography and fine art in a perfect union, paying homage to the classic style of portrait painting and contemporary art photography.
From Wednesday 5 June until Wednesday 19 June, 2019.
