"As an artist, I work hard to develop photographs that show the beauty that exists in life. I believe that beauty and harmony are the best ways to introduce any theme, especially those that are too strong to show. Photography involves baring the soul. The artwork has meaning when it transcends the artist...
My photographic aesthetics are always designed to enhance and enrich the idea in the image. I look for content and shape to be complementary. Everything can be changed, defaced or removed by light, which is as versatile as a brush...
My photographs are a mix of styles; I have a strong tendency toward simplicity, minimalism, oneiric images. They are moving, not fully focused, aimed more to express sensations than real detail."
Andrea Spagnolo's dreamy photography explores modern landscape through color and light. Blurry and highly saturated, these works tell their story through intense, atmospheric tone contrasts. The artist will depict the rare urban skyline, but it is softened until it is more a collection of shapes and lights than anything reflecting the hard steel and glass that one would expect.
In some of Spagnolo's works, the photographs become so diffused that they merge with abstraction.
Spagnolo was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and today lives and work in the nearby Olivos. Bachelor´s Degree in Advertisement, graduated with honors. She used to work as an Account Director, responsible for national and international client support and communication, from different industries.
