Visit the new exhibition “Additive Synthesis”, curated by Fosi Vogue and generated by the students of the Master in Artistic and Documentary Photography the University School of Arts TAI, in Galería Nueva / Las Letras (Calle San Agustín, 14, Madrid).
Additive synthesis in photography is a principle by which we can obtain all the colors of the visible spectrum with the sum and different combinations of light colors. Each color component, regardless of its intensity, is capable of mixing to generate a new color. Making a simile between this theory and the works of the authors of the exhibition, students of the Master in Artistic and Documentary Photography of the University School of Arts TAI, we find very different personalities and projects but that, in their accidental combination, are capable of creating multiple crossed readings and vibrant light resonances.
"Additive Synthesis" refers to the photographic principle by which it is possible to obtain all the colors of the visible spectrum with the sum of them, as well as different combinations of light colors.
Starting from this base, a series of plural mosaics connect us with different existential paradigms. While the artist Abel González advocates an exploration of the shadow and texture that is generated between the dancing body and the clothing, Paola Gómez leans towards a detailed observation of the human hand while she performs manual labor.
Sofia D'Angelo investigates, through portraiture, the phenomenon of breast cancer in men and, on the other hand, the artist Roque Beloso gives voice to the socio-environmental crisis that Pontevedra, his homeland, is going through. A priori, it may seem that a project like Elena Garrido's, focused on growing interest in techno culture among Spanish youth and its cyberpunk aesthetics, and one like that of David Cavas, focused on bullying and the spaces where these dynamics arise, have nothing to do with it. But if we recover the reference to additive synthesis, it is easy to find an exhibition full of life, since everything that is visible and can be affected by light is part of the same root: existence.
In “Additive Synthesis”, apart from finding a series of particular meditations by each artist, we find a Pollock that has been sprinkled by brushes that, despite having different origins, are part of the same space: the world, the present and the ability to be bound by the camera.
