BERLIN and NEW YORK, October 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
The German Gallery LUMAS will open a new flagship gallery in SoHo, with Special Exhibition and Artist Talk by Paolo Pettigiani on November 10, 2016.
Located at 474 West Broadway, the new LUMAS gallery is a contemporary space with an innovative ambiance akin to being in an art collector's home.
To mark the special occasion, new works by Italian photographer Paolo Pettigiani will be showcased. The artist will be present on November 10 to give a selected audience exclusive insight into the making of the series. "I love the majesty and the contrast of nature between the Big Apple skyscrapers and the park. I wanted to highlight this using infrared photography to invite viewers into a world unseen," said Pettigiani, who was born in Turin in 1992. Having already photographed the Italian city Avigliana using an infrared filter, he brought the technique to one of the most photographed locations in the world - putting it in a whole new light! He confronts the viewer with surprising and unseen perspectives on New York, transforming the city into a surreal landscape. Central Park appears in radiant red hues, the sky and water in luscious turquoise.
In over 40 galleries around the world, LUMAS offers museum-quality art editions at affordable prices. Depending on the size and framing, art enthusiasts can aquire editions starting under $ 400. More than 2,000 works by 230 established artists and many promising newcomers deliver a comprehensive look into the contemporary art and design scenes. The works are available in hand-signed limited editions of 75-150. More information and images on request: firstname.lastname@example.org
