Gabriele Grossi (Morciano, 1976)
In 2004 he graduated in law at the University of Urbino in Italy. During this period, as a self-taught photographer, he began his experimentation with Light, Time and Space and created his first abstract images. In 2008 he moved to London where he was selected by the Italian Cultural Institute to participate as the only Italian artist in the exhibition “Mediterraneo, a sea that unites”. In 2008 after returning to Italy he went to live in New York where he approached figurative Photography, creating a new series entitled “New York and the street carillon”. In the same year he began his collaboration with Studio Gr art gallery.
In 2009 he returned to Italy where he began his experimentation with a hand-made pinhole camera. As a result of this experimentation a new work was born entitled “I remember the sea”. In the same year he began his collaboration with Lumas art Gallery.
In 2009/2010 he made a tour of most of the amusement parks of Italy creating a new project entitled “Luna Park” where the pictures were then displayed using an aluminium/plexiglass hand-made light box. In 2010 his attention focused on some old photographs he found in an abandoned house. For the first time he physically interacted with this corpus of images erasing precise details of the pictures. This was the beginning of a new project entitled “Everyday Anyone”. During these years he travelled often to London, Berlin, Paris, New York where he partecipated in exhibitions organized by the European
Commission, Lumas art gallery and Imago art gallery.
In 2012 he began a new project entitled “Interstellar Highways” where webcam images of highways around the world were used to compose imaginary galaxies. The artist currently lives in Italy.
“Every moment, action and development is characterized by the presence of light, transforming itself into a unique, in-depth subject. (…) colored beams dance and intertwine, assuming spontaneous, unpredictable shapes.”Alberto Pasini
