SHUHEI MATSUYAMA [ Tokyo, 1955 ]
Shuhei Matsuyama is an important japanese artist who was born in Tokyo in 1955. His works have been exhibited in over 100 solo exhibitions and 150 group exhibitions in art galleries and prestigious public and private venues mainly in Italy, Japan, Saudi Arabia and the United States. He has also collaborated with major hotels and companies including Four Season Hotel, Mandarin Hotel, Sony and MITSUBISHI. Matsuyama’s work is inspired by the theories of Kandinsky as “color is an inner sound” but also reveals a deep connection with the expressive modalities of oriental culture. Starting from the philosophical intuition, Matsuyama paints the Shin-on, or the sound of things, the music that originates and express them.
The Japanese’s artist’s premise is that everything is Shin-on, sound, and his painting becomes the visible materialization of this idea. The theme of the Shin-on in Matsuyama is of this nature. It establishes a subtle relationship between the visual and the acoustic in which one refers to and inevitably suggests the other. In their silence, Matsuyama’s pictures present themselves as scores to be read, to be brought to life. The gaze invites the mind to discover them, to wander through them like a landscape.

RAFFAELE CANEPA [ Genoa, 1974 ]
Raffaele Canepa is an italian photographer, he was born in 1974 in Genoa. In 1973 he moved to Milan where for almost 20 years he worked as a producer for TV shows and ADV and a director for broadcast and web documentariesand series. A few years later he stepped into professional photography and he started exploring the reign of infrared light.
MILANO>720nm is a still open project which the artist started back in 2015 experimenting Infrared Photography on landscapes and architecture. After modifyng his camera by removing the sensor filter, he shoots covering the lens with an infrared filter, wich completely blocks visible light and only lets infrared light reach sensor. Technically, what these pictures show, is not visible by naked eye. The most distinctive trait of Infrered Photography is the rendition of bright foliage apposed to deep dark skies. Infrared invisible-to-the-heavily altered. Crispy details and almost no human presence push the cityscapes atmosphere towards a surreal mood; in some very personal way, he likes to describe these as “very silent pictures”.
