‘The primordial image, or archetype, is a figure…that constantly recurs in the course of History and appears wherever creative fantasy is freely expressed. Essentially, it is a mythological figure’ C.G. Jung.
In each of these images there is a little piece of human psychology and human fate, a remnant of the joys and sorrows that have been repeated countless times in our ancestral history.
Strifele’s photographs play with scale, angle and composition to create archetypes – landscapes and symbols – from the mundane and overlooked. Dissociated from their context, his images are oddly familiar but unplaceable.
Simone Strifele was born in Mirano, Venezia, in 1978. He is a self-taught talented conceiver that moved to London a decade ago to further his artistic career. Son of Italian creator Barbara Pelizzon, he has been always surrounded by art. This multidisciplinary artist (musician and visual producer) has developed a unique style recycling from everyday life, rescuing from the ordinary to transform it into the extraordinary.
