This striking work is result of a collaboration between conceptual photographer RES and new media artist Constanza Piaggio. Chica Azul is one of the most coveted works from the artists’ Conatus series. Now up for resale, this work is sold out in the primary market.
Following the Latin definition, the Artists define Conatus as the tendency to persevere or to keep on existing. It is a fundamental, essential characteristic of all beings. This series explores what have become assumptions implicit in photography, such as Renaissance perspective, the history of the pose, and what might be termed ‘the pictorial unconscious. Naturalized in Western Art, the Renaissance perspective is revealed by the Artists to be a cultural phenomena.
