    FLORASYNTHESIS - An exhibition of watercolor and work-on-paper by Vico Fabbris

    Gurari Collectionsis pleased to present an exhibition of watercolor paintings and work-on-paper by the artist Vico Fabbris. Entitled FLORASYNTHESIS, the exhibition expands upon the artist’s exploration of imagined botanicals. Culled from his familiarity with nature, plant and flower species, as well as pollinating insects, Vico Fabbris has synthesized his fantasies drawn from reality and imagination. He envisions a world of the slightly surrealistic, complete with fictitious latin names or a genus story as part of the painting. He is especially attuned to the loss of nature and the fragility of botanical species. He replaces the lost habitat with these “flights of fantasy”.

    In this new exhibition Fabbris pushes his painting technique in new directions. Loose and expressive, his work proposes plants and flowers with a scientific level of detail, yet his creations have an enigmatic flair that presupposes believability. Fabbris’ botanical world seems familiar yet it clearly is not.

    In so doing, he delights the eye by creating the satirical and absurd as well as the “almost real”. Whether engaged by an imagined context, by a supporting story, or alone in mid-air suspension, Vico Fabbris’ artwork is exuberant and a celebration of the inventive mind.
