Galatea 5 is a striking C-Tyoe print from Contemporary artist-photographers Tortora & Travezan and comes in a limited edition of 9.
Galatea 5 is a seductive and arresting limited edition, Digital C Type photograph by Tortora +Travezan. The elaborately-staged photograph is part of the Galatea series inspired by the sexually-charged, sun-drenched, iconography of Pop Art painter Tom Wesselmann. Tortora + Travezan have employed digital manipulation to create intriguing scenes of fantasy where nothing is what it seems. The hyper-real colours and vivid foliage of Galatea 5 suggest an exotic location, while the beautiful and mysterious subject adds a touch of glamour and drama. Galatea is the name of a statue the mythical Greek sculptor Pygmalion carved, brought to life and fell in love with in Ovid’s Metamorphoses.
