Exaltations is a new series of images by Italian-based artist Paolo Consorti. His theatrical style blends found and original photography to create hallucinogenic, technicolour vistas. Using real actors and stages as a basis of these scenes, Consorti digitally transforms them to create new images, and in the process turns the ordinary manipulation of information into ecstatic play.

Paolo Consorti was born in San Benedetto del Tronto, Italy in 1964.  In 1991 he began his artistic career with a solo exhibition at Palazzo Ducale, Urbino.  Consorti has had solo exhibitions in Turin, Rome, Milan, Bologna, Urbino and Latina in Italy, Minneapolis, New York in USA, Hamburg, Berlin in Germany, Tokyo in Japan and group exhibitions in Italy, USA, Czech Republic and Switzerland. His works are in various collections including the Pigozzi Collection in Switzerland.
