Federico Bianchi creates mesmerizing body mandalas using the matrix of the female body as a brush.
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1974, he trained in audiovisual techniques and ended up specializing in video, which offers a unique convergence between the rhythms and textures of sound and the fascinating principles of pre-narrative, image composition: the endless combinations of different balances, equilibriums and symmetries. His key invitation: “learn to see the unseen in that which is visible. My vision is always complemented by each viewer’s discovery.”
About his series ‘Body mandalas:
“We are part of an immeasurable whole. We live on a planet adrift, like a leaf floating along an incomprehensible stream. A deep and transformative thought that touches everything. From the atomic to the interstellar, the simple notion of our chaotic existence, leads me to seek the unity of our disintegrated self.
Our vulnerable human condition is so defragmented that we need to re-center in a energetic and purified balance.
To heal this anxiety I create contemplative pieces evoking unity and the infinite.
I use the matrix of the female body as a brush, feminine for creation, transformation, beauty and harmony. I call my work “body mandalas.”
I’ve been meticulously creating dozens throughout the years—perfecting my technique in model posture, lighting, materials, and post-production. Each body mandala is unique in its own way. They can be intriguing and complex, capturing the dance of light and movement in archetypal geometries that summarize the image of the universe and give a mystical sense of oneness and a strong connection with its sacred geometry. This vision and artistic representation of my inner state is complemented by the viewer’s own interpretation of each piece. I discover one more time that the act creation is limitless.” Fede.
