The photography of Federico Stroppiana is synthetic yet capable
of conveying specific meaning to an image using a language that
borrows heavily from all technical and communication medias.
Stroppiana is an artist born of the electronic world/village.
Within his studio, through television, computers and video camera
he travels at a velocity which could not possibly be reached
physically. A static nomad, one who uses information technology
The result is an image which contains all the advantages and
drawbacks of the television language: it’s quick, flexible, fragmented and synthetic. A new media where figurative images become abstracts and abstracts become allusive, without preconceptions and moral lessons. Rather, a different view of everyday events and existences within their respective contexts.
The work of Federico Stroppiana fits within those artistic currents
which explore the human existence/condition and where
communication (between humans) is almost exclusively filtered
by digital mass media.
