Nunzio Di Fabio

Data and contact details

Nunzio Di Fabio's artistic journey began at the age of 15, exclusively using ink and pencil on paper. After this interlude (1982-1986), he moved to Bologna where he graduated in Political Science.
In 1990, he began studying techniques for "self-knowledge" with a genuine instructor of the Isoteric System, which led him to travel for 10 years in Latin America, immersed for extended periods in nearly untouched nature. This interest, coupled with an in-depth study of the Dorian Pythagorean triangle, gave him the impetus for what would become his first works dedicated to Objective Art - (mandala P. 1992-1996).
He then began to become fascinated with sonic geometry, its sonic angles, and its geometric chords, learning the existing correspondences between angles, wavelengths, frequencies, sounds, and, of course, colors.
In 1996 he moved to Rome, and in 1997, he produced another type of mandala, also expressing an equivalence between sound, color, movement, angle, etc., but highly personalized, meaning crafted specifically for a particular individual in relation to their structure - (mandala A. 1997-1999). These studies led him to understand the correlations between sounds and colors since they all belong to the same energy, and the relationships between a color and its complementary and harmonics.
In Nunzio Di Fabio's paintings, the chromatic juxtapositions come from this internalization. He also thinks of the world of frequencies. His works are not just a mirrored manifestation of his sensations, his way of perceiving nature with its elements, in this sense, a type of art that's inherently subjective. But within his dreamlike landscapes, if observed more closely, resonances and their harmonics emerge in the overall material composition. The artist, therefore, attempts to objectify its meaning.
In his mind, there exists a creative plane that he conveys onto the canvas, using colors almost as a musical composition where one can find Rhythm in movements, in lines of force, in the most instinctual part of the painting; Melody in chromatic succession contrasts (contrasts dictated by consonant intervals) and finally Harmony in the overlay and simultaneity of colors. As he learned from his studies, we live on a very particular planet compared to what exists in the universe, a universe primarily composed of a state of matter called plasma. Of the remaining four states: solid, liquid, gas, and electromagnetic, only the first three are the most "common," familiar due to their primary relationship with the ordinary senses of perception, even though ultimately, humans possess all of them within themselves. Setting aside the plasma state, the others can be represented, in a way, by earth, water, air, and fire, elements of nature and of the human being.
When Nunzio Di Fabio paints, references to these elements are always present, sometimes focusing the work on one of them in particular, other times incorporating them all but with varying degrees of relevance. His interest lies in expressing his emotions and reflections using painting as a medium and Objective Art as a starting point.
