About this Exhibit:
New Rome is a merging of art and science, a counterbalance between the past and the present, it is a deconstruction of memory and identity and a creative response to the notion of perfection, as in a perfect society, how we view ourselves and our history. Fabio is interested in exploring the use of imagery of monuments, objects, people and landscapes through a broken lens. His principal tool in capturing images is the camera and the film which provides textures, structures and color that he is able to project, paint and or transfer them over discarded surfaces. He assembles and creates new perspectives of life over surfaces that he has found in the trash, thrown away and devoid of value by our society in the present. The union between these images and these objects (table tops, cardboard, pieces of plywood etc.) gives him the opportunity to explore and create a new perspective of life that is malleable, transforming the use of photographs, collage, paint, and watercolor by combining them all into a different notions of western thought, aesthetics and consciousness. In fact, his work reflects his appreciation for the imperfect, the incompleteness and impermanence of life and history. New Rome examines western thought through a broken lens that provides an alternative way of looking at history and ourselves.
Fabio is an archaeologist, visual artist, writer and photographer. His work has been published by the National Geographic Magazine, iWatch Magazine, Tres Tiempos Magazine, The NatGeo Museum in Washington, Museo de Antropología David J.
