Redox

REDOX means Oxide Reduction Reaction and is the chemical process of traditional photography, the one, to be clear, which used the sensitivity of silver salts to light. Yet Virginio Favale makes it the title of super-contemporary research in which the images are the result of a long process of highly effective digital reworking. Although not disclosed, it all starts with suggestions from Japan which, as is well known, rests its identity on a millenary tradition. In this challenge that smacks of surreal met a temporal provocation, red (RED) dyes everything, with an action that corrodes the viewer, sensitizing him, making it a plate on which the images they act, so to speak, autonomously. Surrealism, that of Virginio, which welcomes all the provocations of ingenious games set in motion by kaleidoscopic symmetries but remains sensitive to the melancholy charm of Japan, always present and evoked with a very lucid and yet bewitching.
