Lapo Simeoni's work originates from a lithograph, drawing inspiration from the context of the nineteenth/twentieth century, a historical period of research and discovery defined by the artist as "the illusion of the perfect century". In this artwork, it is possible to identify Simeoni's mastery of the imaging technique, which evocatively tells the story of late 19th-century Germany in full evolution and growth. Through the use of spray and varnish, the artist has tried to visually reproduce a nebulous universe over the lithography, in order to create a sort of temporal archive, generating a cocoon-like environment that holds memories, to be then discovered through drops of colour, evoking infinite temporal possibilities.

This image is just a rendering and does not display the exact dimensions of the artwork.

Lapo Simeoni (1979) is a graduate of Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. He currently lives and works in Berlin.

Through the use of recycled materials, furniture, collages, paintings, photography, books and objects, he reconstructs narratives around the relationship between man and consumerism, thanks to an extensive process of transforming each material and changing its original function. The artist works with images of the past and present, including photographs of monuments, in addition to logos and symbols from old magazines, contemporary advertising and ancient artefacts or forgotten household objects. Simeoni also alters images and objects assembling and deconstructing them, in order to develop a new vision of time and social transformation entirely ascribable to the contemporary.
