The work of Robert Bianchi immediately immerses you in another world, a future world where humanity has been stripped down to its barest form. What we would view as a regular environment is cast aside in favour of a struggle between utopia and dystopia, evoking a sullen atmosphere coinciding with the feel of liberation and evolution. Crowds of the incredibly familiar human body are morphed into structures resembling plant life, towering over other creatures.It is interesting that in this apparent evolution we have become entities of another order, perhaps one that we originally assumed to be less complex. On the other end of the scale, whilst looking at other Bianchi imagery, we can view his world as if through a microscope, relating our bodies to that of the molecular structures which embody life itself. Returning from such a miniature scale, we find ourselves intertwined within triptychs or diptychs of human and orchid, the highly symbolic and synonymous with reproduction. These windows into the world of Robert Bianchi have just been added to the permanent collection of The Museu de Arte Moderna do Rio de Janeiro (The Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro).
