dnj's featured artist this month is Anne Veraldi
Anne Veraldi, Boat, inkjet print, 5" x 7"
In these playful photographs, Veraldi presents visions of daydreams. She builds atmospheres of ice, air and water, capturing various toys shot beneath or wrapped in plastic bags. Veraldi plays with our perception, tricking us into believing at first glance the objects are actually life-sized and not toys. "This is important because I want people to have an initial uncertainty as to what they are seeing and pause for a moment to look at this imaginary world," says Veraldi. The resulting images have a fresh, bright quality that manipulates the color of the plastic in a very painterly way.
Anne Veraldi received her MFA in Painting/Sculpture from the San Francisco Art Institute. She has shown extensively throughout the United States, often publishing her photographs simultaneously. In November 2009, she won the "Portfolio Contest" in Color Magazine. Her works are in the collection of the Di Rosa Collection and the Crocker Art Museum.
