Fragile

Giuseppe Lo Schiavo x Spazio Nuovo Gallery / FRAGILE

The new technologies and the digital ecosystem allow us to explore reality by imitating it or by creating new knowable realities. In recent times we are witnessing a hybridization between reality and virtuality. This hybridization does not devalue the physical world, instead, it opens it to new perspectives: art transforms reality, subverts it and offers it to us as an instrument of the critical reinvention of modern times.

For the artist, the reality is not a fixed concept but rather a fluid and, above all,  a fragile phenomenon which manifests itself as a subjective experience conditioned not only by a cultural but also by a biological component.

The works seek to redefine the concept of reality, seeking a possible path through the use of three-dimensional images and spaces presented with a high level of photorealism, taking as a basis the idea of disorientation by mixing up the identity of the works themselves.

The artist uses new technologies to present us with a personal approach that goes from photorealistic static works made in computer graphics and defined by the artist as photographs of the virtual space works created with the help of artificial intelligence and machine learning to digital sculptures printed in 3D with sophisticated resin printing techniques and digital works imprinted inside an analogue negative.

The physical world enters the virtual and then emerges again, in a mutualistic relationship.
