The director Tessa Dóniga Johnson describes her work as “Art, still-life and moving images explored through a fragmented particularity. Conceptual and playful minimal and absurd.”
She plays with our appetite for games and composes live and particular still lives. Composition, pastel colours, slow motion: her work is entirely orchestrated to catch our hungry gaze for a treasure of ideas.
Tessa Dóniga’s work goes beyond the absurd distinction between beauty and ugliness, true and false, good and evil. Currently working a lot with food, still life and eccentric photography, she’s known for her minimalistic touch in her visuals.
Obsessed with detail, Tessa Dóniga hypnotizes the viewer through photography, art direction, commercials, institutional campaigns and social media branded content and her work has been used for videos, film, photo, advertising campaigns, identity, branded content, editorial series, product styling & wallpapers.
