Cristiano Volk offers a critical view of social, political and cultural issues. Referring often to modern history, he explores the varying relationships between popular culture and fine arts, for example, comparing Venice tourism to advertising iconography. Volk’s work reproduces visual signs, playing with semantics and cultural connotations whilst arranging new, conceptually layered, compositions. His methodology is consistent: each project is connected through recurring formal concerns and subject matters. The pieces are often composed of several works grouped around specific themes and meanings, producing a tapestry of concepts and ideas.
