“I don’t know much about my philosophy which is still being defined, but to tell the truth I don’t think it really needs to be defined. I mainly use the pinhole camera, a technique that I have used now for over 20 years. The cameras and hand holes are all made by me, this is one of the reasons why I decided to use this technique since it allows me to build my own visual space/photo space in full freedom and to use all the sensitive materials provided by polaroid and fuji, from photo paper to digital. I can also use long exposure times and see life and things from a different point of view, giving me time to think and understand better… The common theme of my photos is often the journey, where the photos can be used as a clipboard memory, hence on returning from my travels I can re-elaborate my ideas and seek common themes to link the images together.” Luca Baldassari

arha = ah

When we are moved, when we feel, when reminded of something.

We mutter ‘ah’

My paintings address the subject of performance and the different architectural typologies that influence the exchange between audience and performer. I am interested in the ways in which architecture shapes the complex phenomena associated with the performer-audience transaction. In a complimentary fashion, my paintings have been made to shape reciprocal painting-observer interaction through light responsive surfaces that engage audiences in an expression analogous to performance.

I render each oil painting with a variety of grey and black hues on drafting film mounted onto panel. The result is a near monochrome picture that largely avoids traditional modeling of light and dark in the painting; rather the image emerges where actual light is caught in the grooves and reflected from the ridges of each carefully executed brushstroke. The viewer’s movement enables light to shift across the surface, simultaneously revealing and concealing parts of the subject.

My images are constantly on the verge of disintegration, as the indeterminate movement of light over the surface plunges areas into deep, endless blackness while bringing other areas into the brilliant, hard-edged focus of reflected light. Devoid of dramatic tableaux, my works suggest meaning through connotation, metaphor and through formal composition and presentation. My paintings gain further interest from the interchange of physical/optical experience and the non-locality of their depicted virtual topologies. At issue in my two-dimensional pictures is the reconciliation they offer between our three-dimensional, corporeal world and the zero dimensions of digital space. It is my aim to render, as real and palpable, indeterminate zones of infinite possibility – monochrome paintings that are as surprisingly unfixed, ephemeral and unpredictable as performance itself. – [Statement : D Hutchinson]
