Rossato is an Italian artist living between the ultra-urbanized London and the romantic Venice. Her pieces celebrate vintage aesthetics and the juxtaposition of natural and man-made designs. She gets inspired by old images and frequently asks herself what happens to the photographs not taken, or to the images captured only from the eyes – concepts she tries to reflect in her work.

Dèja vu and Greetings are the latest series from an exercise of mixing 78 cutout postcards where snowy mountains, luscious trees and watercourses are recomposed in a new designed landscape. Although frequently pictured white, the sky works as a recurring reference point, unifying each landscape in its infinitive compositions.
If you enjoyed Dèja vu and Greetings check Remapping Landscape, where Rossato takes the technique a step further by digitalizing and flattening the compositions.
