Venieri’s images explore the juxtaposition of hyper-realistic photographs of war taken from film-stills and the news media with seemingly naïve images of children’s dolls.... More > Positioned, digitally, to fit within the eyes of children’s dolls, the works disarm viewers at first glance, while delivering a potent punch of terror upon further inspection.

This bold work opens up the possibilities of technology in a way that echoes both modern genetic science and the uncanny effects of the Surrealists.< Less
