Paolo Ventura at Hasted Hunt Kraeutler Gallery
Paolo Ventura presents Winter Stories, opening Thursday, December 10 at Hasted Hunt Kraeutler Gallery in New York City, with an artist’s reception Wednesday, December 9 at 6pm. Paolo’s invented worlds take on a life of their own in his beautiful large-scale prints. To learn more about the project and Paolo’s process, watch an edited excerpt of Paolo Ventura and book editor, Denise Wolff, engaging in a show-and-tell on the book Winter Stories at Aperture Gallery this past October. In this clip, Paolo explains how the Winter Stories project came about with the idea to recreate an invented world around a circus performer. Paolo presents the sets he brought from his studio and explains how he builds them playing with different perspectives. He also shares stories of the different objects in his sets inspired by childhood memories, Fellini movies among others. Then, Denise Wolff, who edited Winter Stories, takes us on a behind-the-scenes book tour revealing the making of this limited-edition monograph.
