Sara Rainoldi

Like nothing else in the universe, Argentinian artist Sara Rainoldi explores the ephemerality behind digital fashion advertising images seen across multiple digital media platforms. Her works mirror today's romanticism for immaterial digital commodities and how desire became affected by the speed of the net.

When asked about her choice for fashion images, she explained ‘When I was a teenager, I wanted to study fashion, so I would collect and read fashion magazines on a daily basis. These were the images that I would consume in a world before social media and fast broadband networking’. Having started university and joined Instagram in 2012, the same year that Instagram was bought by Facebook, the influence of the Instagram platform is very clear in her works.


‘IN 2014, I HAD A VERY SHORT DREAM WHERE I WAS PAINTING ON TOP OF THOSE FASHION MAGAZINES. I BEGAN DOING THAT AND I STARTED SHARING THOSE SERIES OF WORKS ON INSTAGRAM AND BEGAN COLLABORATING AND PUBLISHING THEM ON DIFFERENT ONLINE PLATFORMS AND PHYSICAL MAGAZINES ACROSS THE WORLD’

In recent times, Sara has been very intrigued by the scale and immersive quality of James Rosenquist paintings. Rosenquist, who was part of the 1960s Pop Art movement, made a living painting billboards before becoming an artist. Since the beginning of his artistic career, Rosenquist would often create large scale paintings extracting imagery from print advertisements, photographs, and popular magazines, holding up a captivating but critical mirror of mass media and mass consumption.



‘I HAVEN’T HAD THE CHANCE TO SEE ONE OF THOSE MURAL SCALE WORKS IN PERSON YET, BUT FROM LOOKING AT THEM ONLINE, THEIR IMMENSITY AND IMMERSIVE QUALITY DRIVES ME CRAZY’

Rosenquist paintings reminded Sara of the very city where she was born and raised.

‘THEY MAKE ME THINK OF BUENOS AIRES, THE CITY WHERE I WAS BORN AND RAISED, AND WHOSE ROADS ARE FULL OF BILLBOARDS. I PARTICULARLY REMEMBER TAKING A ROAD FULL OF FASHION BILLBOARDS ON A DAILY BASIS WHEN I WAS IN SECONDARY SCHOOL, WHICH I BELIEVE HAVE HAD A VERY IMPORTANT INFLUENCE ON THE NARRATIVE AND SCALE OF MY WORKS’
