About Giovanni Ozzola

Fog or sunlight streaming through colorful curtains is just one of the light effects at the core of the artist Giovanni Ozzola’s oeuvre. Working mostly in photography and, more recently, video, Ozzola produces picturesque images that oscillate between the immediacy of capturing the ephemeral and the carefully constructed artifice traditionally associated with painting—all while evoking the five senses. In his three-dimensional practice, Ozzola looks at some of these same properties by using a variety of materials: neon lights to illuminate found objects from within, marble installations as backdrops for video projects, or slate slabs as surfaces for etching.

Italian, b. 1982, Florence, Italy, based in Tuscany, Italy
