Maiofis revives the almost forgotten bromoil technique, which achieves the quality of a painting. Photo emulsion is saturated with oil paint, and the print acquires the painted softness of sepia. The artist turns his photographs into monochrome paintings. Maiofis selects large-scale painting formats uncharacteristic for photography and makes a print on canvas. What is more, the reality that was once so sought after to capture in the camera’s lens loses its documentality in the artist’s works.
