PREAFATIA

Hassan's works are seeded by an aleatory act of painting, from where raw data is selected as complete yet disordered information to be reorganised. The juxtaposition of complex elements and minimal transformations which is staged, alludes to a universe unknown, bringing forward a dimension of ideological independence to suggests an opposition to the notion of self, identity or authorship.

The focus of the work lays in articulating complex systems, exploiting the phenomena of the physical fluidity of paint substances in contraposition to the liquidity of conceptions that chaotic situations allow to occur.

As a realm of existential paradoxes, chaos is faced as an endless source of information from where to extract and translate visual experiences that challenge cognition and rigid principles, through developing ambiguous images and deconstructing definitions.

The recursive fluid patterns, deconstructed and re-assembled, take the particular into universal and back again; the intention is to re-examine the nature of the Image through a formula that goes beyond the mere appearance of abstraction or mimesis, to arrive at a new self referential system, a field that organises itself to describe particles of an absolute.

The work which begins with incidental paint spills trigger cycles of appropriations, translations and deliverances; these transformations go from digital forms to painstakingly painting methods, to sculptures, to 3d renderings, videos, performance and back around, possibly ad infinitum.

At times read as aerial views of landmasses, dissections, or purely abstract images, the central labour of painting stands as a threshold between our time linearity and a dimension of pure absolute autonomous Other; each move a posteriori (ie sculpture or video) through anchors into our world, open psychological bridges between the perennial images coming in contact with our mortal needs, while discovering a self-sustained ecosystem that lies within.

Traces of philosophy, science and poetry intertwine within each work; like suspended moment within a continuum, the proposition is that every possible combination of elementary particles occurs an infinite number of times, given infinite time.
