NY based Italian artist Federico Solmi’s show centers around his most recent animated video “Chinese Democracy and the Last Day on Earth,” its prequel “A Song of Tyranny” and a group of heavily textured videopaintings and objects. Solmi reinvents the visual world of animation by creating and sequencing images using behindthe scenes technology that he borrowed and adapted from film and gaming. For the visually saturated videos on view at Postmasters, Solmi has created hundreds of drawings and paintings as skins for a 3D game environment. The process involves real time performance recorded inside that environment through motion capture technology. Solmi himself enacts all the main characters in his films and provides the voiceovers, becoming, in effect, a one-man film studio. - thru Mar 16
