BARTOLOMEO CELESTINO

BIO

Bartolomeo Celestino is an emerging contemporary photo media artist. His body of work is distinguished by contrasting observations of the natural world and his considered portraiture works.

His practice constructs narratives from very diverse subject matter and loads them with formal, allegorical and interpretive potential, often engaging with the politics of place and contemporary culture. These ongoing investigations are a subject of visual research, and his sense of process and relentlessness of endeavor – his incessant want to return, reset and repeat – defines and underpins his wider projects.
