Adam Chamandy is an artist of meticulousness. His images are built by the accumulation of its smallest unit: the color dot, similarly to the pixel in a digital picture. Chamandy interrogates the making of images by machines—cameras, computers, photo editing software, printers, microscopes, x-rays, or telescopes—those tools have transformed our representation of what we see. With his bold skills and a huge amount of precision, Chamandy restores with his hands what the machines reveal. Under his vision, the real world is twisted by a computerized eye, calling up a hypnotic new pointillism.

His new project is based on the images brought to light by medical gears such as microscopes or functional magnetic resonance imagery. Yet, if those instruments are meant to show the objective reality of life, Adam Chamandy delivers in his paintings an interpretation, a fantasy of what could be biological elements—a blood cell? Bacteria? A tiny part of brain? Those objects bloom on the canvas like extravagant plants, claiming the viewer´s careful inspection of the pictures to realize they are painted with airbrush, dot by dot.

“Economics of complex forms” is the artist’s most recent project and his first solo show at YAM since 2012. It is a great opportunity to enjoy Adam Chamandy’s exquisite craft and complexity of mind for those who could not see his multi-media piece at Zona Maco art fair last year. The artist will be present at the inauguration cocktail at YAM Gallery on Friday, January 26, at 7pm.
