ARTIST | Fabian Albertini
Fabian Albertini is an Italian artist based between Reggio Emilia and Rio de Janeiro. Albertini is guided by her interests in perception, movement, the relationship between man and environment through dialogues between art and spirituality. Combining photography, installation and overpainted photographs, her projects often show fieldwork in remote locations - such as deserts, volcanos and rainforest. Albertini was educated at the prestigious Instituto Italiano di Fotografia in Milan. She has had solo exhibitions at Galerie Molin Corvo in Paris as well as at Galerie Palü in Zurich.
In the Vulcano series, Albertini builds layers through using visual and physical texture. Photographs of geological surfaces are built upon with paint, creating an illusionary space between the media. As a viewer, we explore the image, finding new points of convergence between mediums and surfaces.

The reductive prints give the illusion of texture while maintaining the integrity of the original work of art. In other words – they are the flat version of an original. The key to our reductive print starts with the scan. The scanner captures all of the detail from the original. Every mark, brushstroke, fine line, smudge and incidental as well as the peaks and valleys of the piece are captured and reproduced to simulate the depth of the original when printed.
