GALERIE ROUGE 58 presents "VOLUPIA" an exhibition by photographer Samantha Casolari.
Vernissage Wednesday April 16, 18-21h
The images part of Samantha Casolaris debut solo exhibition in Europe, all portray the concept of an abstract overarching voluptas expressing through the individual’s experience in nature. Voluptas, or sensual pleasure, or bliss, the one we experience wandering and immersing ourselves with trees, plants, flowers, seas, a beatitude that does not have parallel with others. It is an ancestral and innocent emotion that takes us back to our most basic and simplest core, our purest needs. Nature can create a peaceful euphoria, provide for wordless meaning to our lives, embrace and sooth. Its mystery is one of its greatest beauty and wonders, and we often become childlike in front of it. The images strive to be as ineffable and impalpable, like the comforting pleasure- VOLUPTA. Samantha Casolari portrays her feelings when she is immersed in nature and its subjects filtered by her perception. Like the air full of particles and flickering glimmer of a hot summer day. Like Voluptas, the goddess of sensual pleasure, daughter of one of the most romantic couple in the ancient greek mythological world.
