RECEPTION: Living large in your small NY space
Décor Aid 3-Sep-14
About Tiziana Borghese:
“I am neither painter nor photographer,” Tiziana Borghese explains, “but a hybrid of both.” This state of being characterizes much of the Australian-Italian artist’s enigmatic, formally lush work. Concerned with both the visible world and the subconscious, the dire and the hopeful, she crafts complex and mesmerizing images of unreal spaces that draw us into unknown locales, through dark regions towards brilliant and obliquely familiar brightness. She creates glowing havens for positivism and optimism.
Borghese stages and photographs elaborate settings that often include her own paintings, offering us a glimpse of mysterious and unknowable environments. Typically these spaces are portals and passages, leading the eye deep into mysterious and intriguing terrain. Her images play with textures, reflections, direction and perspective, evoking impossible architecture and terrains where distinctions between interiors and exteriors, depth and surface become an intriguing play of media. Borghese crafts exquisitely detailed psychological landscapes that draw viewers into imaginative new spaces for thought.

Consumed with exploring our world as they uniquely see it, the artists in Agora Gallery’s “Altered States of Reality: an Exhibition of Analog and Digital Photography” use a myriad of visual vocabularies and technologies. Differing in method, these artists share in the passionate quest to articulate the moments often ignored in everyday life. Influenced by Surrealism and Abstractionism alike, these artists boldly investigate their psyches and natural surroundings. The results, at once harmonious, perplexing and alluring, take us on an inspirational visual journey.
