From Caravaggio’s grotesque ‘Sacrificio di Isacco’ to Tiziano’s reclining ‘Venus di Urbino’ the vignettes that make up ‘beauty‘ ‘spring from the immobility of canvas, animating a sentiment lost to the fixedness masterpieces.’, Tagliafierro explains. The once frozen moments are imagined as unfixed landscapes, animating the figure’s faces and movements within them through digital manipulation.
