Exhibition Ken Damy at Palazzo Bonoris Brescia, June-July 2003

(...) And the other sequence, ‘Rosae in Poprad’, is exquisitely conceptual, with just enough mystery of revelation that engages the viewer in a serious game of visual dialectic. The large size, almost natural size, of all images eliminates the distance between work and viewer, who finds himself caught in a sort of ‘live’ representation.
Giuliana Scimè

Giorgio Morandi painted is flowers (homogeneous bunches in small pots or collected in bouquets) as a gift: a flower is a gift by its nature. Ken Damy flowers belong by right (and style) to the category of gift flowers: they have a poetic and deeply human history.
They have been a gift; for this they have been preserved, dried, frozen twice in their organic life, first by the cut of shears and then by a warm and dry ambient that has enhanced the residual moisture and in a way has devitalized them, but without depriving them of their shapes, colours, the joyous meaning of life...
As a gift, as a symbolic object to express our feelings, they became a metaphor of existence. A ‘year of flowers’, a year of gifts has become a photo album, a sequence without a necessary order, in which the photographer looked for the detachment on the one hand, for the involvement on the other... The photos, the Ken Damy flowers, belong to the descriptive iconographic model par excellence, belong by right to that model of expression that is enhanced in the relationship with the roots of the creative photography, with a deep love for colours, the sharp relief, the precise mark, the minute description that reaches the crease, to the slight gasp of the vegetable fibres, to the ribs drawn be the skeleton of the leaf...
