Andrea Chiesi, ‘Ombra 24’, 2009, Nohra Haime Gallery

Using a palette of black, white, and gray, Chiesi creates photorealistic paintings of forgotten spaces, like these moveable library stacks. While devoid of human presence, the subjects suggest everyday human activities and thus feel mysterious and symbolic.
