Virginia Vargas - Donna Orientale Metropolitana
The artwork Donna Orientale Metropolitana (“Asian woman on the subway”), made by Virginia Vargas, is part of a limited black and white series, in which the artist proposes deeply realistic images related to contemporary life, exotic cultures and folklore. Showing her refined artistic skills, Vargas illustrates a Japanese ordinary life scene. In particular, the partial view is devoted to the portrait of two guys but the centrality of the composition is entirely dedicated to the Japanese young girl. Using a technique typical of photography, the artist decides to represent a sharper figure, around which everything is out of focus, undefined and incomplete. The work is surely a tactile proof of the artistic refinement of the Italian-Uruguayan talent.
