Photograph printed on sandpaper

This work is unique. 

Addo Lodovico Trinci lives and works in Pistoia. His work is primarily focused outside conventional art practices where he intervenes with installations within inhabited or public spaces.

In this work the artist has printed a minimalist photograph onto sandpaper. The combination of the cropped and cut image with the innovative material in which he is working, transform the photograph from a still-life representation into an abstract object. 

His artwork has been widely exhibited the last 25 years: in 1992 he gained international acclaim in the IX edition of the Kassel Documenta; In 1999 he took part in the review Extension, at the Het Domein di Sittard museum in Holland and that same year developed an installation with the Florentine artist Daniela De Lorenzo with which the exhibition space of Turin is inaugurated. In 2005 he participated in (In)Visibile (In)Corporeo, curated by Pier Luigi Tazzi, MAN - Museo d’Arte di Nuoro; in 2006 in Misure del tempo, edited by Giovanna Uzzani, Mac,n - Museo d’Arte Contemporanea e del Novecento, Monsummano Terme (PT).

The artist's most recent exhibitions include the collective Le luci di dentro, Erica Fiorentini Arte Contemporanea, Rome, curated by Ludovico Pratesi, 2011; Galleria Nicola Ricci, Carrara, curated by Nicola Davide Angerame, 2012; Oltre il giardino,Palazzo Fabroni, Pistoia, curated by Ludovico Pratesi, 2013; FORT / DA risonanze ed intermittenze del fotograficoCasa Masaccio, 2017.
