Hauntingly desolate Interiors by Matteo Massagrande
Matteo’s haunting but photo realistic paintings of desolate interiors give the viewer a glimpse of a life gone by or an absentee space. You can really feel the wistful loss of the buildings inhabitants through Matteo’s soft palette, use of light and cinematic perspective. As the viewer is drawn through the pictures you get a sense of the vacancy of the rooms but yet imagine a time when they were full of life.
Born in Padua, Italy Matteo studied and absorbed the Renaissance masters and although he has created his own style he too uses multiple focal points to give the impression that the room is being viewed simultaneously from different angles yet still retains perfect perspective.
