The Fallen Human by Fabio Giocondo
Thursday October 27 to Wednesday November 9
Rising to prominence in the last decade, Italian artist Fabio Giocondo quickly achieved national and international recognition for his art, winning numerous prizes throughout Europe. His thought-provoking work is classic, oil on canvas with a sixteenth century colour palette and predominately portrays the human figure in theatrical and often distorted ways.
Giocondo has been exhibited in the Vatican Gallery, and in galleries throughout Italy as well Brussels, Monte Carlo and Hamburg. The Fallen Human is his first exhibition in Australia.
This exhibition is part of the Year of Print Celebrations to commemorate the Print Council of Australia's 50th year anniversary.

Our exhibition title, ‘A Persistent Illusion’, is derived from a quote by Albert Einstein, who believed that “reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one”.
While the world around us may appear solid, logical and linear, the personal reality we each experience is anything but. At certain moments, the intersection of our personal reality and our external reality gives rise to an unusual sensation of unreality, in which the illusion of a cohesive reality seems to waver (daydreams, déjà vu, etc). For this year’s exhibition, each artist was invited to explore these moments of unreality, as well as interrogating broader notions of reality from both an individual and conceptual viewpoint.
