Veronese photographer Mauro Fiorese’s Treasure Rooms series give the viewer a glimpse into the secret vaults of Italy’s greatest museums.
His photographs — printed on cotton paper beneath glass on wooden frames — depict lush masterpieces stored in sterile, regulated worlds that form a kind of ordered beauty. In his image above, “Treasure Rooms of the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna, Rome”, the white tiles and gilt frames of the archives resemble a waiting room with Renaissance perspectives.
Fiorese, set for his first US show in New York, sees Treasure Rooms as a “series of non-traditional landscapes that form an imaginary art gallery”.
