Mattia Guarnera

Mattia’s practice draws on visual language taken from sports and entertainment as a catalyst to explore and better understand the broader nuances of the everyday human condition; taking the sport out of sporting. His work addresses a variety of contemporary themes such as identity, expression, competition, masculinity and stardom. He does so by homing into often overlooked scenes and moments which he believes evoke interesting allegorical, ideological and philosophical debates that could otherwise be difficult to express. This results in outcomes which appear mystically vague with nothing seeming set or conclusive, existing in a state of limbo. Mattia believes that this reflects a Buddhist-like or Carl Yung-esk ideology which both grapples yet embrace parallels such as good and evil, pain and glory, digital and real, clear and vague.
