Me, Giampiero Abate

Giampiero Abate profilo 1

 

Statement

The use of 3D software to create “humanoid” subjects in realistic settings.
This is the goal of my figurative artistic research: a contamination between the unreal and the natural in an Ultrareal world, which leads to the enrichment of the sensorial perception of painting.
From Augmented Reality, to Video Render, from 3D printing with biological materials to Video Mapping.
My investigation concerns the Ptolemaic position of humanity and how it is no longer sustainable that these, not feeling an integral part of Nature, do not respect it.
My works recall my passions for physics, astronomy, philosophy and esotericism, to investigate the role of Man with the Universe and with Nature, to induce the awareness that it is necessary to change the position of man from “Ptolemaic” to “Copernican”.
Themes that are linked to the goals of the SDGs, the Green Deal and New European Bauhaus: a community, also extended to creatives, to propose ideas for politics for a respectful coexistence and development.
It must be reflected that Natural Resources (water, land, forests, the atmosphere, etc.) are not to be used and destroyed, but, as for Relational Quantum Mechanics, are a series of relations to which one cannot regardless. Assigning the right Identity and value to Nature for a new balance with the human being, so that we can live together in harmony for the development of all, with respect for all.
Here is the importance of open dialogue for a constructive diversity of views, without prejudice, with healthy comparisons to have a critical mind.
From my first work “Charon, ferryman of souls“, linked to the landings of immigrants in the Mediterranean, with the theme “Ultrareal” I began to investigate the role of Man in the Universe in dialogue with the Platonic Solids, and then continue with “Sabbie Immobili” and the inability to take positions and decisions, subjected to their own political and social inertia. Hence the thrust towards the theme of Nature, the search for human balance so as not to have to imagine a dystopian future.
The research also focuses on the use of the work itself: in the 2019 Ultrareal exhibition, in fact, a new way of immersion through AR has created sensorial stimuli and reflection of the works, placing the viewer at the center of the scene (viewer-centered)
