if illustration and photography were to have a lovechild it would look a lot like the work of alberto seveso. in his work, seveso contrasts the simplicity of the human figure with the complexity of his elaborate illustrations. color and line acts as a parasite that invades the medium of the photograph. the illustrations are not merely branded onto skin, but actually swallow it and shred it into swirling figurations. limbs become lines and hair becomes pattern as the illustration occupies the middle ground between figure and field and allows the boundary between 2d and 3d to be completely dissolved.
