Reality is a Dream: Photography by Chiara Fersini
The subject matter of Chiara Fersini’s art revolves around her dreams, joys, sorrows, and fears. She combines both photography with Photoshop to create these surreal works that are descriptively titled—e.g. the image above: “A Breach Between Dimensions,” and below: “Gravity is a Lie.”
Chiara Fersini (1986) took a degree in Foreign Languages, English and Japanese. Since she was a child she was surrounded by art. Her mother, a painter and decorator, handed down to her the love for beauty and encouraged her inclination for visual arts. Her interest for photography is very recent; it started out after a study journey in Japan in 2007 and grew faster and faster coinciding with a falling in love with Photoshop. But photography is not just a passion for Chiara, it is the best way to show that intricate world that she feels inside. She put into her works her fears, dreams, her sorrow and joy and seeing them happening into images is a manner to feel free.
