    Paolo Ventura’s purposefully ambiguous work, offered here, is a unique, large-scale composition from Collage (2017-19). Four photographed cut-outs of male figures, taken by the artist, are collaged onto a two-dimensional seascape background, comprising methodically painted panels in watercolour shades of blue and pale grey. The figures’ anonymity as they face away from the viewer and their lack of interaction add a feeling of unease to this fictional landscape.
