ArtMonaco - Patrick Lo Guidici


These old photographs of the legendary Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich were wonderful. Swiss artist Patrick Lo Giudice has taken the images and in what is called expressive art photography has used heat and wax on wood. I don't speak German so I can't fully understand the process but I loved them.

The translation would be:
"Fire painting with pigments and photography transference in wax on wood."
I have no idea how "fire painting" works.. Never heard of it.
Have a nice Sunday!

Yes these photos are gorgeous indeed - am sorry to have missed this event as I have been up in Paris, but I will look out for it next year - I met up with Peter Olsen for a day which was quite delightful - I was wondering if you would like to meet up for lunch sometime - I have been meaning to visit Gorbio and St Agnes for a while and would love to catch up...what do you think??
