Anno Domini presents...

"Multiverses" by Fernando Chamarelli, solo exhibition
Artist's reception: Friday, August 3, 2018 from 7–11pm


Fernando Chamarelli

Fernando Chamarelli returns to Anno Domini with a second solo exhibition strongly inspired by quantum mechanics and multiverses. In this body of work are characters from ancient civilizations in contact with cosmic beings from other galaxies and from another time….a parallel universe to be explored.

Fernando Chamarelli is a visual artist and illustrator, with a degree in graphic design. For years Chamarelli explored several techniques and styles of art inspired by his interest in cartoons, caricatures, realistic portraits and later street art and tattoos; Chamarelli ultimately found his unique voice and signature style that is immediately recognizable whether on canvas or out on the street.

Currently the work developed by the Brazilian artist is based on Quantum Physics, String Theory and The Multiverse. In his creations the artist uses elements of different cultures. Civilizations from the past, present, and future, exist simultaneously; characters full of color that inhabit the micro and macro cosmos.

Despite all the rationality and precision of Physics, the observer travels in a surreal world created by intuition and creativity.

Chamarelli tries to use a universal language to communicate, through sacred geometry and various symbols. Transmitting the message that everything is connected, and that in order to evolve we must perceive our connection with other human beings, animals, nature, and the cosmos.

Fernando has worked and exhibited in Brazil, North America and Europe.

Anno Domini presents...

In Borges' Labyrinth” by Denis Korkh
Artist's reception: Friday, September 7th from 7-11pm


Denis Korkh art
Infinite Tiger, acrylic on canvas, 48” x 36”, 2018 by Denis Korkh

Denis Korkh (b. 1986, Ukraine) is a painter of philosophies. His imagery holds cryptic keys to personal truths that viewers may find fantastical, surreal or disturbing. In this way, he is a perfect translator of the brilliant short stories encapsulated in "Labyrinths" by Jorge Luis Borges. 

Korkh’s "In Borges’ Labyrinths" paintings are a visual feast true to the magical-realism of Borges’ tales; so much so that Borges’ words are not replaced by these representations, they have moved from the imagined into a tangible reality by way of Korkh’s attention and expression of them.     ~ Anno Domini

Here, I visit "Labyrinths" by Jorge Luis Borges I am happy to map a few passages and share them through these paintings. The quality of my attention to his work then changes from a reader to its denizen. I am possessed by it. I come to believe there is only one author, infinite philosophies, perfect memory, and I find an object of obsession impossible to lose. I am the other Asterion, I follow The Immortal and his horse, I am imagined and dismissed by a wizard at the ruins, and live in a depthless library which certainly has every book. In my cell, I paint an infinite tiger.

I was born in Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine in 1986. There, I was instilled with many of my core values and sensibilities. In 1997, my family moved to Cleveland, Ohio. In 2004, I moved to San Francisco; there, on occasion I would lose many of my values and sensibilities. In 2011, I came to San Jose and have resided here since.

Up until that time; I made a painting here and there– less than a handful in all. Then, overnight, in November 2013, I became obsessed; I painted one, and then again the next day, and then, every free minute for a long time after. I had made just over a hundred paintings in that first year.

I knew for certain only that I loved the ritual and that there was meaning. That year, I discovered Anno Domini and inside I found life-time works. On these walls were decades of someone's silent contemplation–­unconcerned and honest. I knew then that in a few decades I will produce work that will also have this quietude which will be less a product of my effort and more of time and intimacy.

I am still very short of this decade but in no rush to quietude. Today, my work is perhaps neurotic but not at all concerned – it wanders freely around disparate concepts and techniques. My work now is to amplify ideas I find beautiful–Borges' "Labyrinths" is a bottomless cache for me.
