Martino Prendini: Inner Topography

Inner Topography is an illustrated series by Martino Prendini that brings visual representation to various psychological states. I love seeing what emerges when one attempts to give physical expressions to inner landscapes. I’m including the titles of each, as they serve to cast a tiny spotlight.


The artist states:
It’s the attempt to draw a kind of figural map of the inner world made of weaknesses, fears, desires, addictions, rituals, memories, hopes. Small prisons and small liberations, sometimes poetic sometimes grotesque, in contradiction with each other as they are in any inwardness.

Words Battle

I enjoyed examining each aspect of these pieces. I couldn’t help but conjure stories about how the symbolically illustrated parts interconnected.
