Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Fotosintesi Cloroflliana uses green pigment made from chlorophyll pigments extracted from leaves to paint a field of monochromatic green. The natural and organic in this abstract work is intensifed, through its juxtaposition against the aluminium used in the work. Aluminium being a hard, industrial material commonly used during the Industrial Revolution contrasts against the soft monochromatic paint mixed from organic pigments.

Artist Profile

Born: 1972

Hometown: Sicily, Italy

Based in: Bali, Indonesia

Filippo Sciascia (b. 1972, Italy) is an Italian artist based in Bali, Indonesia. He studied art at the Institute of Art, Nordio, Trieste and Fine Arts Academy, Florence, in Italy.

He has had solo exhibitions in various venues in Italy, USA and Southeast Asia such as Sarang I, Yogyakarta, Indoneisa (2016); National Archaeological Museum of Naples, Italy (2013), Museum Castel Dell’ Ovo, Naples (2012); Langgeng Art Foundation, Yogyakarta (2011); National University of Singapore Museum (2010); Spazio Obraz, Milan (2010); Valentine Willie Fine Art, Kuala Lumpur (2009).

Over many years, Sciascia has explored the pictorial tensions between painting and imaging technology of the new era, challenging the art of painting as a practice. Choosing photographic imagery to re-depict on canvas, Sciascia captures the transitional process from one medium to another in an amalgamation of pixels, lines and forms.

The emphasis on the process in his work rather than on the object demands a profound understanding of the character and history of each media. Sciascia demonstrates this knowledge through his consistent and loyal struggle with the challenges of representation and reality.
