GR Gallery is proud to present “Interstellaris”, a group show featuring three artists whose works investigate the discourse around the world’s and human energy through dynamic & perceptual abstract painting. The exhibition will feature recent works by three innovative artists from Italy and Argentina: Alberto Di Fabio, Andrea Bianconi, and Felipe Pantone.

Interstellaris aims to exhibit the artistic output of three international, contemporary artists, who not only share an affinity for dynamic shapes and a powerful abstract style, but primary tent to depict, though a paradoxically strict and disciplined technique, the vibrating and undetermined power that rule the cosmos, the movement of the world and ends to reflect on everyday life. The artists are invested in researching and experimenting with hard-edged mesmerizing artworks, that investigate, through pulsating abstract matrixes and optical like patterns, the energy of the universe.

The exhibition puts together 15 recent artworks, including paintings on canvas and wood, works on paper and sculptors, executed between 2012 and 2017, engaging in a conversation about the infinite possibilities through which the power of astral nature interacts with one another. In addition to these, it is going to be particularly remarkable the execution of one mighty wall painting by Alberto Di Fabio and a mesmerizing wall drawing by Andrea Bianconi that will pep up GR gallery’s environment, throwing the visitors in a parallel universe distinguished by the immensity of the interstellar emptiness, populated by dynamic, aliens like, arcane signs. Alberto Di Fabio (1966, Italy)’s abstract paintings take their cues from science and the natural world, depicting flora, fauna, astral systems, and DNA in vivid color and detail. In creating his closely observed and patterned paintings, Di Fabio works in tandem with his reading of texts of chemistry, physics, and biology. He has cited a fascination with tradition-bound artists such as de Titian and Giotto in addition to the more obvious influence of Abstract painters like de Kooning and Mondrian.

Andrea Bianconi (1974, Italy). His body of work is composed of drawings, paintings, sculptures, murals, video and public performances. His artistic research is an incessant wandering amidst dreams, obsessions, risks, surprises, and an endless roaming among the fragments of words and things. In his recent works Through the use of symbols, primarily the arrow, constructs imaginative landscapes composed of obsessive marks that symbolize direction and movement.

Felipe Pantone (1986, Argentina)’s work is at the cutting edge of street art. His style is characterized by the use of bold colors, geometrical patterns and Optical Art elements. Straddling conventional graffiti, typography and abstraction, his work fuses bold elements of graphic design with highly evolved geometric shapes, to create an ultra-modern aesthetic which complements and reacts with the stark modernity of our cityscapes.
