Auction Results and Indebt Information on Guido Argentini Art
Argentini was born and raised in Florence, Italy. He spent three years
attending medical school before deciding, at age 23, to follow his
passions and pursue a career as a fashion and beauty photographer. He
currently lives between Italy and U.S.A., spending the majority of his
time in Los Angeles.
In 2003, Guido Argentini’s first book, Silvereye, presented an exquisite series of studio and landscape nudes. That work was a reflection of the artist’s great personal passion for sculpture and dance.
“The photographs in this book are part of an absolutely new personal quest based on my great love for sculpture and dance, which lasted from 1984 to 1996 and which I financed entirely on my own. I was heavily influenced by the art of Constantin Brancusi, whose primeval sculptures of polished bronze made me aware of the fascination of the absolute. That is why I used a silver paint to emphasize the body form of my models”
In his second book, Private Rooms, 2005, Mr.
Argentini offers an entirely different type of personal journey, one
where eroticism and beauty are clearly inseparable. Within these pages,
we are invited to take a glimpse into a unique ‘feminine universe’. This
second book is the result of ten years of photographs, all taken in the
intimacy of closed rooms, ancient villas, modern apartments, many
hotels, from the most elegant five-star locations enriched with
luxurious velvets and four-posted beds to the most squalid insignificant
hourly-rate motels furnished with cheap plastic chairs and worn-out
wallpaper.A universe where all these rooms become the theaters of the
artist’s self-directed voyeuristic fantasies.
