CARLO D'ORTA - AN ABSTRACT LOOK AT NEW
In 2019 Carlo D'Orta went to New York to tell
the architecture of it in a different way, with the particular abstract look of
his series "Biocities".
In this series D'Orta investigates contemporary
architecture looking for visions that look like paintings of abstract geometry. His
images may look like collages, but they are absolutely true and real. The
crossing of shapes and details is not in fact obtained in post-production, but
is the result of the crushing of perspective, obtained by looking for
particular positions from which to take the photograph and using a powerful
zoom to compress the depth. The forms of buildings, even different from each
other, merge so visually.
The deep inspiration of this research
by D'Orta comes from the artistic movements of the first half of the twentieth
century and from the painting of artists of geometric abstraction such as
Mondrian, Rotchko, Malevic, El Lissitzky, Peter Halley, Paul Klee and the
neoplasticism of De Stijl.
Works of the series "Biocities" of
D'Orta are in important public collections (Bank of Italy, Chamber of Deputies,
Consulate General of Italy in NYC, EUR spa, Confindustria Headquarters,
Architektenkammer Baden-Württemberg in Stuttgart, Oncology Radiology Department
of the Polyclinic Hospital of Rome, and others) and in many private
