Working in the most technologically-advanced areas of high-resolution imaging,
Ginestet has recently transcended the two-dimensionality of photography with his new
series of composite photo images referred to as "Sculptural Photography." The
images resonate with both the warm presence and the movement of the human form.
A carefully placed montage of shifting poses of the central figures, using highly-
controlled exposures, creates a unique, three-dimensional sense of form. The artist's
graceful compositions are reminiscent of the sensitive works of leading Florentine
Renaissance painter Sandro Botticelli with a distinct emphasis on line, composed in a
unique, warmly intimate style.
The soft background of stucco surfaces and garden settings including a set of wall
sculptures of faces (each carved by the artist) all share with the viewer a compositional
focus on the central figures. The female subjects, often classically trainer dancers, are
sometimes seen in Cubist-related refractions and framed in a courtyard doorway. This
daylight-infused setting both physically and metaphorically separates the artist's own
sculpture studio and his photography studio. This connecting passageway thus
becomes the artist's platform for a synthesis of both sculpture and photography. Here
the viewer encounters a unique and delightful artistic hybrid, "Sculptural Photography."
Rosenbaum Contemporary is pleased to represent exclusively this most recent body of
work from this widely-acclaimed and internationally-recognized artist.

imploración de la luz – siete cristales más día y noche
The imploration of light
These art pieces are dedicated to the imploration of light and its seven main colors.
The same colors also appear in the Picadoras-collection in different colored precious stones.
They symbolize seven feelings or emotional levels, which condition every human or artistic creation.
The installation is comprised of nine sheets. The first and white one stands for daylight.
The last and black one symbolizes night. In between, there are:
Orange for innocence, virginity and openness.
Pink for inspiration.
Blue for gestation.
Green for perfection and maturity.
Violet for respect , distance and reflection.
Yellow for satisfaction and for pride about the achieved work.
Red for rest, farewell and emancipation.
The grey colors of the cross inspire the imploration of light.
The cross is slightly asymmetric.
