Con Vivio | Digital Art Collage Patterns
$16.00 – $160.00
The Con Vivio digital paper pack is created from a tablecloth design that was shown at The National Gallery of Victoria.
The gallery commissioned Mathery Studio for the design of the Dècor of the Sponsors Dinner in occasion of the Launch of the “Italian Masterpieces from Museo Del Prado” Exhibition.
The ancient Italian term convivio means banquet. The title of our work “Con Vivio” reinterprets and transforms this meaning literally translating it to “With Vivio”. This exemplifies our concept of community and a shared table.
The Artwork is a collage of traditional Italian gestures, religious iconography and highly stylised food , creating hidden layers of meaning.
The “Corna” , a hand gesture resembling the horns of an animal, always accompanied by the word “Cornuto! ” means your wife is cheating on you. Salame slices covering the woman’s eyes indicates that she is unable to make a clear judgement “Hai le fette di salame sugli occhi!”. Using a crust of bread to soak up the last of your meal or piling too much spaghetti on your fork were deemed faux pas by Galateo, the Renaissance social code of conduct.
Each image is sized 12×12 inches and 300 dpi and can be patterned.
