Micaela Lattanzio fragments portraits into mozaic-like works that appear to dissipate into the walls. Hers is an unconventional method of showing photography. She cuts her photos into abstract shapes. While in some, the original image remains intact, in others, she uses the image’s newfound porousness to intertwine multiple photos at once. The pieces become visual puzzles where details are scrambled and our eyes must do work to see them as cohesive wholes. Lattanzio has a solo show coming up titled “Fragmenta” at Ma’ Showroom (Largo S. Agostino, Montefalco, Italy) March 21 through May 21.
