NEW YORK, NY.- Sous Les Etoiles Gallery is presenting “ Binarieta” by Italian artist Gianfranco Chiavacci. This is the second show by the gallery dedicated to the artist. The exhibition will be on view through July 26th, 2024.

A self-taught and innovative Tuscan artist, Gianfranco Chiavacci (1936-20t11) was born in Pistoia, near Florence, where he lived and worked for all his life. Surrounded by exceptional artistic circles around Milan and Florence such as Fiamma Vigo’s Galleria Numero, notorious for its unmatched flavor for the avant-garde and kinetic, abstract and geometric art Chiavacci began his career as a painter in the 1950’s. Gianfranco Chiavacci has made binary language the foundation of his pictorial work and his experimental research.

In 1962, after taking a programming course on IBM’s first computers, Chiavacci’s curiosity in this new form of language sparked. With aspects of optical and kinetic art, he began with making two and three-di-mensional paintings experimenting with different materials creating geometric figures and forms, all the while never using the computer, but the binary logic that is inherent to it. This discovery of the binary language, drove him to experiment and develop an almost obsessive aesthetic in his work. He was absorbed in the middle of two important Italian movements of the 1960s, Arte Program-mata and Arte Povera, which inspired him to create a style of his own.

Gianfranco Chiavacci was committed to exploring the continuous deconstruction of form followed by a reconstruction of a unique aesthetic. Tirelessly inventive and driven by an insatiable curiosity, he developed, over the course of his fifty-yearlong career, a poetically experimental artistry that deviated from the conventional rules of creation. His incredibly diverse and abundant production can be considered a study of abstraction. By intersecting the experiences of technology with the expression of abstract art, Chiavacci was captivated by the idea of exploring an origin and rebuilding it into an artwork.

Over the years, Chiavacci sought to decode this language by applying it in his paintings, photographs, drawings and sculptures. In the 1970’s, Chiavacci extended his experimentations into photography and used the medium as a tool of investigation. During this time, he developed his most extensive series Ricerce fotografice (Photographic Researches), a body of work representing the purest form of abstraction. Through his systematic mannerisms, Chiavacci created an aesthetic of information.
