Caravaggio pushed his figures up against the picture plane and used dramatic lighting which gives his paintings a quality of immediacy. He portrayed realistic observations of the physical and emotional human state. These combined characteristics had a formative influence on Baroque painting.

Meet the Renaissance Characters Inside Romina Ressia’s Imagination

(This interview was conducted in Spanish.)

To see more of Romina’s portraits, check out @rominaressia on Instagram.

When she was just 5 years old, Argentine artist Romina Ressia (@rominaressia) became fascinated by a reproduction of Las Meninas, a baroque painting by Diego Velázquez, that hung on a wall in her aunt’s home. Now she reimagines classical paintings, especially those from the Renaissance, in her portrait photography with contemporary characters and props, like microwave popcorn.

“Although my work may appear to be about the past, it is quite the opposite,” says Romina, who explores themes like the desire to belong, imitation and the value of success in our time. “My images arise from my interpretation of contemporary society faced with both timeless problems and new events.”
