This abandoned Moorish Revival palazzo is situated in the middle of Italy, hidden away in the rugged hills of Tuscany. It was constructed in the early part of the 17th century and was reconstructed and expanded several times since. It was lovingly restored for 40 years by a Spanish nobleman. Orientalism was a popular movement at the beginning of the 18th century around Europe, and it inspired him to adorn the interior space with spectacular colors, arabesque detailing, intricate wall designs and incredible sculptural ceilings. Arabesque is part of acclaimed photographer Gina Soden’s latest series – Distanza (2022). Every work in the Distanza series relishes in receding space. Abandoned grand architecture disappears into a single vanishing point, drawing the viewer in to a past that seems to exist in the present. Technically ambitious, the Distanza works were created over a number of years. Many of the works were captured in Italy, continuing Gina’s lifelong fascination with extraordinary and atmospheric spaces that abound there. Printed on Hahnemühle Fine Art Baryta 325gsm Giclee print, a premium quality paper, which is perfect for Gina Soden's brightly coloured and textured images. Fine Art Baryta paper has a similar foundation to that used in the past in traditional silver fibre prints. Its premium formulation allows for high image definition and 3-dimensional colour depth. The paper's unique glossy Baryta surface lends itself perfectly to saturated colour images. Edition of 10 with 2 A/P's. Your print is produced direct from Gina Soden's studio who personally proofs and check the artwork. It will then be packaged and rolled in a tube sent by courier. Size includes a 2cm border so it is ready for framing. With your artwork there will be a signed & numbered certificate of authenticity. This can be affixed to the back of the print when framed

Gina Soden, artist and photographer, is available at Wychwood Art. At the heart of Gina Soden’s photography is a preoccupation with abandoned structures and locations. Based in London, she travels widely to undisclosed sites throughout Europe and explores the boundaries of beauty, decay, nostalgia and neglect. The genesis of each piece is often the unique architectural character of each location, heightened by their painfully slow transformation after years of abandonment.
