bubblebyte.org is pleased to present Utilizza La Tua Illusione I, a group exhibition by diverse International practitioners incorporating abstract imagery and optical illusion to deform reality and represent animated colorful distorted dimensions.The show is inspired by the epic 1993 Guns N’ Roses album, Use Your Illusion I, one of two albums released in conjunction with the Use Your Illusion Tour, the last time that the band ever played together on stage, signalling a turning point in the band and their music.
Use Your Illusion I and its context are a point of departure to celebrate the work of different artists that take inspiration from the 90’s psychedelia and rave culture using abstraction and flashy colors to set parallel realities as an alternative to our current political and economical events.
The work of Paul Flannery, Sylvain Sailly and Anthony Antonellis, present characters of immaterial geometry and illusion towards the compression and reversion of time and space into a fluid discourse to evade and experiment. Travess Smalley and Tom Hobson play with our senses re-creating new dimensions in movement while withdrawing inspiration from 3D holograms first designs and multilayered ways of seeing. Theodore Darst and Samara Scott works, inspired by glitch culture and washed out aesthetics, propose animated mental escapes while the surrealistic work of Adam Cruces is appropriating old narratives to reproduce them through new exits.
Utilizza La Tua Illusione I is constructed as an a-temporal journey with no beginning and no end into a world of bright pastel colors, psychedelia, motion, geometry, surrealism and alter-reality highlighting new forms in contemporary visual expression.
Let the work lead your imaginary and enjoy your evasion.
