“With this principle, therefore, the larger elements of a composition will be placed on the bottom plan , thus creating a perspective overturning. This visual forcing may seem strange, but I find in it a certain analogy with the scientific view on physical events that could occur in the future on our planet, using mathematical calculations.
This is a vision that wants to highlight things that in this moment appear as a very distant point, that therefore want to widen on behalf to discover the details. I also think that counter perspective concept is already present in our daily habits: for example when we focus on a small shermo talking to people who may be on the opposite side of the planet, and putting in the background, or even ignoring people who are close to us .
I represent the counter perspective concept in my works, both figuratively and abstractly, and in both cases are the result of experiences related to my travels.I dedicated also one work in tribute of Leonardo da Vinci as my inspirer.” Mario Prencipe
