Karim Carella presents Aphàiresis the new project of 2021
Karim Carella arrives late to photography, with a degree in Statistical Sciences and a life in search of spaces suitable for his insatiable creativity, which will lead him to abandon his work and life in Milan attracted by the primordial need of the sea. Karim’s journey in photography is a journey in search of himself, or perhaps only of his place in the world, in a gradually more conscious and autobiographical way.
Fascinated since childhood by the poignant landscapes of the countryside and coasts of southern Italy, he begins to explore the deeper meaning of the visible, a universe in which the human figure is banned but whose action takes a leading role in the conformation of the landscape: the agricultural fields (Tyrsenoi, 2017), the incredible marine spaceships of the trabucchi (Phoenician fishing, 2012), the cliff dominated by the lighthouse or by mysterious stone constructions (Guardians of the sea and Atlantic sights, 2018).
Aphàiresis, Greek term that stands for abstraction, is the new photographic project signed by the artist Karim Carella as a continuation of the new artistic journey started with “Oblivium”.
With a gradual and progressive selection of shapes and shades, also due to the refinement of the chromatic compositions, the artist achieves a concept of photography frozen in time and isolated in space with representations tending more and more towards abstract.
A research taking the form of a risky formalistic approach, almost snobbish, but which in fact reveals the quest for new codes to emphasise the pain cry of the mistreated nature.
All the artworks from Aphàiresis are limited edition photographs of 5, printed on Hahnemühle Fine Art cotton paper “Bright White” 310 gsm with Epson Carbon Inkjet print (Giclée print).
