Urban Innocence 3

Pistacho Photography, portraits photo session in London. ( 3/3 )

We did this photo shooting around East London, an area that means a lot to this artist. We visited places that somehow relate with her day to day events and at the same time are part of her artistic work. Colors, textures and patterns mixed with feelings of belonging and some innocence.

 

‘Ceci Lombardi’s organic style of painting, in which abstraction is blended with solid form, offers a unique glimpse into the natural world.
Her process relies on water’s fluidity and unpredictability to create her trademark images. 

Lombardi celebrates the rebirth of beauty commonly found in decaying urban settings—sublime patterns that appear
on a rusting surface, wind and water erosion,
intricate cracks in a wall, new plant life springing from pavement.
She invites the viewer to challenge his or her notions of deterioration within an urban setting,
identifying the unpredictable beauty that only weather and natural elements are capable of creating. 

Ultimately, whatever man creates or manufactures, nature’s forces will eventually take over within the urban sphere.
These forces will constantly change and challenge manmade structures in large and small ways, reminding us of the raw, uncontrollable power of nature.’

Lombardi is currently working for her upcoming exhibition "Homespun" in collaboration with Lisa Hall. She has taken the traditional Portuguese 'Trapilhos' and with guidance and assistance from her mother and sister, she has woven her fragmented memories, thoughts and feelings creating a series of abstract hanging works.
