Bio

Filippo Sciascia 
(Palma Di Montechiaro Sicily 1972 Italy) 

Lives in Bali, Indonesia, and Florence, Italy. 
He studied art in Italy and the united states, and He has had exhibitions in various venues in Southeast Asia, Europe, and America. Sciascia examines light as a primary artistic medium in his works across painting and sculpture, video and installations.
His “Lux Lumina” project deals with light regarding the human condition; therefore, the information of his future and the relationship of technology blending into the evolution of life itself. He is questioning science concerning Biology of nature itself and the influence in society to the present day. 
Highlighting the circadian rhythm, which is a physiological process of regulating the daylight and the absence of it during the night, which affects humans, plants, animals, all originated from cyanobacteria.
Therefore extracting melatonin powder, natural leaf paste, or bauxite to create pigments originated from the natural process of photosynthesis.
The conceptual choice of using such materials that provide the understanding of nature to the creation of these works lead to creation = human creativity = art.
He “edits” objects and paintings, to arrange them together in a way to form a narrative equation of his artistic concepts. 

Filippo Sciascia
(Palma Di Montechiaro Sicilia 1972 Italia)

Vive a Bali, in Indonesia e a Firenze, in Italia.
Ha studiato arte in Italia e negli Stati Uniti e ha tenuto mostre in vari luoghi nel sud-est asiatico, in Europa e in America. Sciascia esamina la luce come mezzo artistico primario nelle sue opere attraverso pittura e scultura, video e installazioni.
Il suo progetto “Lux Lumina” si occupa della luce sulla condizione umana; quindi, l’informazione del suo futuro e il rapporto della tecnologia si fondono con l’evoluzione della vita stessa. Sta mettendo in discussione la scienza riguardante la biologia della natura stessa e l’influenza nella società fino ai giorni nostri.
Evidenziando il ritmo circadiano, che è un processo fisiologico di regolazione della luce diurna e dell’assenza di essa durante la notte, che colpisce esseri umani, piante, animali, tutti originati da cianobatteri.
Quindi estraendo la melatonina in polvere, la pasta di foglie naturale o la bauxite per creare pigmenti originati dal processo naturale di fotosintesi.
La scelta concettuale di utilizzare tali materiali che forniscono la comprensione della natura alla creazione di queste opere porta alla creazione = creatività umana = arte.
“Modifica” oggetti e dipinti, per disporli insieme in modo da formare un’equazione narrativa dei suoi concetti artistici.
