The Susan Berko-Conde Gallery/E. M. Berko Archive is pleased to present Fractalizations And Other Works, an exhibition by Carlos Ginzburg.

Carlos Ginzburg has been exploring the idea of the fractalization of pictorial space and the artistic image for over 20 years. He was the first artist in France to begin investigating the possibilities of the idea of Fractality, Chaos Theory and Complexity for the work of art. He collaborated with numerous leading philosophers and intellectuals such as Susan Conde, Severo Sarduy, Pierre Restany, Klaus Ottman, Gille Dorfles, Germano Celant, Fernando Davis, Edgardo Antonio Vigo, Jorge Glusberg, and Romero Brest. His work has been influenced by the writings of Cioran, Nietzsche, and Heiddeger.

Ginzburg’s images are of the world around us, coming from the media, advertising, politics, and other areas of discourse. Ginzburg maintains that Homo Sapiens have entered the era of Homo Fractalus: The Fractal Human Being where the totality of life is also within the detail. Ginzburg creates a fascinating surface, dense with color, image, and detail that before the eye, becomes a profusion of fractality in a work of art.
