With digital montage techniques and reference to 19th century’s painting, Barbara Nati’s work gathers
layers of meaning that can be traced to deeply- seated collective memory.
Even though these layers allude to the realm of physical experience, they diverge from tangible reality into the realm of the enigmatic.
Every setting, as a matter of fact, unleashes a visceral response by the viewer who is asked for a rational interpretation through a gloomy metaphor of the upcoming future.
In her attempt to analyze the chaos reigning underneath the surface of existence she combines conceptually interesting visual landscapes that blur fantasy and reality.
Barbara Nati’s oeuvre lies beyond what is commonly intended as photography, mostly standing out for its estranging effect.
Her profoundly lyric investigation takes shape through a skillful use of digital and technological tools. Her language always hovers between poetic and ironic, delivering essential ethical messages, with a particular focus on environmental issues.
Nati’s discordant yet strangely beautiful images express a premonitions of a coming end, survival, and ultimately the genesis of a new civilization.
