Emerging Contemporary Art
Artsetter is a new artistic community in the contemporary art world. At Artsetter.com, our mission is to give talented artists an online art gallery for the exposure they deserve, as well as to connect artists and art lovers. Furthermore, Artsetter is a place where those who are new to contemporary art can feel free to explore and begin to appreciate wide-ranging genres of fine art. An Artsetter art gallery is the ideal place to browse to begin collecting contemporary art online. Artsetter artists compose a diverse group of emerging international artists and embody a high level of quality, as each has been granted an art gallery by fellow members of Artsetter.com.
An art gallery at Artsetter works differently from other sites, because to ensure the high caliber of art displayed in each individual art gallery, artists go through a voting process before their art is showcased in an Artsetter online art gallery. For an art gallery on Artsetter, the contemporary art market is no longer isolated for the elite: members of Artsetter are the curators, and cast votes to select who receives next Artsetter art gallery. By offering a free art gallery to Artsetter artists, we believe that we can promote a fair vision of the contemporary art market: one that is based on talent and art lovers’ appreciation rather than through mere luck and connections.
We believe Artsetter will soon become a recognized and trusted entity in the contemporary art market –one that displays new and diverse talent on a daily basis, and one that helps to promote and contribute to what contemporary art is all about: constantly changing the landscape and renewing creative inspiration.

I am a street photographer in Milano. I graduated at Civica Scuola di Fotografia of Milano in late 90s. Giovanni Chiaramonte was my teacher and presented my first personal exhibition when I was a student. He's still a friend of mine and always encourages me to show and submit my works. After graduating at I.U.L.M. - Milano I was editor at Duel, the movies magazine directed by Gianni Canova, and I co-wrote Enciclopedia del Cinema Garzanti. In 2001 Duel published my portfolio Polufloisboio – deeply resounding, about archeological architecture in Greece as memory of a glorious past in contrast with a prosaic present. I attended to a Master of Fotografia del Territorio at Politecnico di Milano. I worked as interiors photographer, then as still photographer in tv fictions. After a Master of Cinema at Scuola del Cinema di Milano I started to work as assistant director and that's my job since ten years (you can see my professional profile at http://it.linkedin.com/pub/pasquale-mascia/8/90b/837). I’m deeply inspired by American photographs of the Thirties (Evans, Lange, Weston) and by the work of Lee Friedlander. I’m linked to Italian school of landscape photography of Eighties and Ninenties, (Basilico, Cresci, M. Jodice, Ghirri, Chiaramonte) passing through a master as Paolo Monti… even if I dislike tripod, with medium format cameras too. I realized various black and white portfolios. I'm interested in transient aspects of town: under construction urban areas drawing provisional itineraries and facades, shadows blades as temporary borders and doorsteps, paper faces looking from city walls as prisoned, speechless gods; angels in town embodied in statues and people. You can find these themes in photos one and five, selected from my portfolio Milanolabile – temporary city, 60 fiber based paper prints from medium format black and white negative film. Photographs four is from the portfolio Calabrolucane. I constantly photograph South Italy as a land of memory and mystery, as you can see in photograph two too, taken from Otranto, a portfolio dedicated to the most eastern town in Italy. Photographs three is from Polufloisboio – deeply resounding. I use different film formats: 35mm, 6x6cm, 6x7cm, panoramic (24x54mm). I print by myself my portfolios, but I rely on professional fine art labs for committed prints. I work with instant films too, Polaroid (600 and Image) and Fuji (Instax). In polaroids urban and natural landscapes are like a theatre scenery, artificial elements are more real than natural ones, representations of places confuses with the real ones, reflections discover spaces of mystery, illusion and dream. Fuji cold colors and Instax format inspire me a less dreamlike and more documentary mood.
