About the Exhibition: “ATOMIZE” aims to exhibit unique techniques that immerse the viewer into a progressive thought regarding the fascination of the atom world. Sashie’s work revolves around the belief that the coacervate is a universal model and basis for all systems and organisms, simple and complex. Since producing his very first works, Alberto Di Fabio has been taking inspiration from the world of natural sciences such as biology, chemistry and astronomy. His painting explores atoms, cell structures, neurons, DNA chains, constellations and galaxies. With each transformation, Harif adapts his work of humble materials into powerful artworks, as a reference to himself and the life that he has built and abided by. Forming his alter ego, Haculla, into an icon in the present day scene, his technique is viewed by refusing the deadening effects of iconographical conformity.
