Fine Pixels Opening Invitation

Galerie Mark Hachem (Beirut) is proud to present “FINE PIXELS” by Lebanese artist RICARDO MBARKHO. The exhibition opens on Tuesday, 15 of May 2012 and will run until Tuesday, 29 of May 2012.

The exhibition will showcase Ricardo Mbarkho’s images: The artist manipulates different layers of significations by investigating multiple questions related to language, communication, cultural industries, history of art as well as the visual representation within the sociopolitical sphere. Mbarkho’s images are made from texts. The artist uses the computer as a tool to transcend texts into images; the text’s binary codes, those simple digits that computers use to stock information, are transposed into a unique corresponding visual. By this creative process, the shapes and colors of Ricardo Mbarkho’s art are constantly unveiling new facets of the initial texts.

Ricardo Mbarkho’s work stems from the vibrant scene of today’s global digital art practices. Mbarkho divulges alternative readings to issues pertaining to his local cultural and sociopolitical environments, where the latter’s significance and information are embodied and channeled through the artist’s own flux.

Galerie Mark Hachem invites the public to share the artist’s doubts and findings through Ricardo Mbarkho’s solo show, “Fine Pixels”.
