We are proud to announce that two of our shortlisted artists have been selected to show with The Cynthia Corbett at PULSE NY, 3-6 March, 2016.
Fabiano Parisi a returning PULSE exhibitor and Isabelle van Zeijl is making her debut this year.
Fine Art Photographer Isabelle van Zeijl explores the aesthetics of the past to bring new light on the role of the female throughout the ages. In this sense, her images do not belong to present, nor to the past. By creating the illusion of a painted surface in her photographs, Isabelle van Zeijl aims to make the image linger somewhere in our collective memory. Photography has in many senses become the most ideal medium to reinvent and transform classical beauty into something new and modern. Isabelle van Zeijl undoubtably has a great eye for beauty, which is proven in her authentic self-portraits.
Van Zeijl has shown work continuously and internationally over the past ten years. Exhibiting at emerging and established international art fairs in Germany, UK, Belgium, Sweden and Italy. Represented by galleries located in Utrecht, the Netherlands, Knokke Belgium, and New York. Her work continuously reaches a wide and growing audience, which most likely will continue as she explores perceptions of the female as well as further developing her practice.
Fabiano Parisi was born in Rome, where he lives and works. This has naturally made him exposed to classical paintings and frescos and as well as classical monuments and ancient ruins and he has always been fascinated with their beautiful decay. That art can draw real strength from the past is thus a concept that leads Fabiano Parisi’s work and fuelled his photographic project, Il mondo che non vedo (The world I do not see). Focusing his attention on modern ruins: theatres, churches, factories, and other abandoned places that remain from our recent past and present. Il mondo che non vedo focuses on the mysterious beauty of these modern ruins, which according to Parisi have a soul that exists almost independently from human memory and experience.
Following a degree in psychology, he chose to make photography his career. His most recent and hugely successful solo project was at PULSE New York 2015 with the Cynthia Corbett Gallery. Prior to this, his work toured international venues and fairs with the Young Masters Art Prize, to which he was shortlisted in both 2012 and 2014. Parisi participated in the 54th Venice Biennale, Italian Pavilion and in Fotografia Festival Internazionale di Roma in 2012 at the Macro Museum. He was awarded a special prize at the Arte Laguna Prize 2012 in Venice and in 2010 he was the winner of the Celeste Prize International for photography in New York. He has had several solo shows, some of the more recent of which were held at Diana Lowenstein gallery in Miami in 2013, at the Glauco Cavaciuti gallery in Milan in both 2013 and 2011.
