Gaze Photography in cooperation with Alessandra Carbone & Gelato!ArtSalon, are delighted to represent the Guest Artists Section of ArtItaly &ArtWorld for the upcoming exhibition event at DomagkAteliers in Schwabing (June 5th to June 10th , 2014).
The aim of ArtItaly & ArtWorld creator, producer and curator, Mrs Pamela Cento is the intention to give visibility to the most interesting streams of energy of the emerging art scene in Italy and to put it in relation with the most vital, non-mainstream artistic production of the rest of the world.
For this specific occasion, the Guest Artists section we present video artists and photographers who are either based or have intensely worked within the New York City area.
Filmmaker/photographer from Syracuse, N.Y, after his B.A. in Film/Photo Production at The University At Buffalo, in 2000, moves to New York City and received an M.F.A. in Film Directing at The City College Of New York.
Throughout his career, Jason has directed over twenty films and screened his work at various shows and events New York City. He currently resides in New York City where he acts as Film Department Director with Gelato! Art Salon.
In his two short movies on film, lyrically infused with music, Jason explores ordinary moments of everyday life with a provocative, ironic and daydreaming eye.
A ‟Metaphysical journey into the process of eating”, it’s a phantasy around the symbolism of food as an object of temptation that needs to be surrendered to, in a sort of mystical process that ultimately aims to celebrate life.
‟A brief, fleeting interlude”, tells of the sudden, wordless, deep communication experienced by two strangers seating at a table on a sidewalk.
A photographer based in New York City, Gisella is originally from Rome, Italy. She utilizes the process of double-exposure and combines performance with static backgrounds that merge subjects with textures such as asphalt, cobble stones, sand and ocean water. In each piece the artist evokes nostalgia and ambiance, playing upon the desire of place rather than presenting its actuality. Since 2006 Gisella Sorrentino has exhibited her photographs in exhibitions that took place in Europe and along the East Coast. Her work has been exhibited La Mama La Galleria in the Bowery, the La Casa Internazionale delle Donne in Rome, NOoSphere Arts, and several other galleries.
Realized on film using the technique of double exposure, the series “Collin, 2013” by Gisella Sorrentino is capturing different results of the encounter between photography and movement. The images presented for ArtItaly & ArtWorld open us to the possibility of discovering more surprising interdependencies between the inner dimension and the outside context. In these shots, the subject was invited to "surrender" to the beauty and the sensual provocation of nature as a place in which we need to just get lost in order to find ourselves again.

Sign of Sound and Alessandra Romeo
Fabiana Yvonne Lugli – dancer, scenographer, visual artist- lives and works between Rome and New York City since the late ‘90s. In fact, it is in NYC where the project SignofSound has been conceived.
When dance, music and visual sign merge into a live act, the possible combinations are endless.
A VISION OF SignofSound (2011)
In this work, shot and edited by A. Romeo, the camera slides slowly around moving bodies and luminescent surfaces in synergistic union with the hypnotic sound of Roberto Procaccini. The outcome is a video with a tactile quality that enhances the overall sensory experience of the performing act.
Dominique Catton was born in San Francisco CA and grew up in Rome, Italy. She earns a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts in Rome and attends a One Year Certificate Program at the International Center of Photography of New York. In the last years she has chosen photography and video as principle vehicle of expression, exploring the human condition through live performances in front of the camera. Her work has been exhibited in Italy, England, Turkey, New York and is present in several private collections around Europe.
"Till You" (2012)
In this short movie, we are carried along the waves of thoughts, memories and longings of a relationship
"Silent Noise" (2012)
In this work Dominique cuts off the external noise, not only in terms of sound, but also metaphorically, as the cultural and materialistic defense barrier that keeps us from experiencing our primary essence.
