    *** Epoxy resin leftover, pebbles, Goose egg, Birch plywood, LED.
    It is painted on the back ***

    "Plastic pandemic" was realized in Luca's house during Covid-19 quarantine.

    This description came from the artist's mouth itself:

    "Stones and pebbles are paramount for me. These came from my past: I have picked up since long time ago. Was lying hidden, in a corner of my studio, one small canvas, zipped bag, with other treasures, I found on unremembered beaches. I love minerals and stone, and stainless steel and insect, spider, moth, dragonfly, beetles. And the three beasts on the back are Manatees that usually pass by, trough little river, in my backyard. They are cannibal mutants manatees, because they have eaten too much plastic in their lives. The plastic on the opera are leftover of resin that remain on the table where I do the pouring for Floors operas. I have been intrigued by leftover since started to work with watercolours: the pieces of paper where I test the strokes and force of paint on brush, are beautiful pieces of art to me. I have stored some the paper plate where I mix color for the paintings, since 20 years. It’ll be in another opera soon.
    On the back of the opera there’s also an Haiku, in Italian. This is the translation:

    Aboulute
    Yes, all is thinking.
    We are like the left remains,
    as hoarse flickering. "

    In his career as a freelance for the prestigious Condé Nast (Uomo Vogue, Maison et Jardin, Vogue Italia, Casa Vogue) Luca has shooted really everything: portraits, food, interior design, architecture, jewels. Than in 2015 he started working on “synchronicity”: 3d photo mosaics hand cutout, based on photographic family’s memory and photos of cities and landscapes.

Luca Lionello

United States

In his career as a freelance for the prestigious Condé Nast (Uomo Vogue, Maison et Jardin, Vogue Italia, Casa Vogue), Luca has shooted really everything: portraits, food, interior design, architecture, jewels. Than in 2015, he started working on “synchronicity": 3d photo mosaics hand cutout, based on photographic family's memory and photos of cities and landscapes.


Now he makes “Floors", a research on road's concrete, asphalt, and pavements with the aim to “codify the interminable genome of our existence, written on the land on which we walk."

“Floors is my latest photographic research. It is an exploration of our culture, habits, and history, which I stumbled upon while walking on the streets of the world. Roads are a testimony of our existence, an infinite history book that transcends down generations the violence, accidents, beauty, and complexity of humankind better than any monument ever will. They are a graphic memory of our times; a disorganized archive of our civilization that continuously morphs and amalgamates the ancient with the new.


I started this project a year ago, but I have been looking at the ground my entire life, finding extracts of people's lives, precious treasures, and art. I call it “Floors" because that's where we walk barefoot, where we feel at home, and that's the sense I'd like to transmit with this work about the world. Every street has its own DNA, made up of its unique history and heritage–no two are the same. This work aims to codify the interminable genome of our existence, written on the land on which we walk. All pictures are spontaneous and taken in just a few seconds. What you see is exactly what I encounter, taken simply with my iPhone, on the spot."
