Fabiola Ubani's career

Fabiola Ubani, born in Navarre and graduated in Fine Arts by training, combines his teaching work at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria with an intense artistic production throughout a career of more than twenty years. Interested in engraving as a form of expression, from the beginning she discovers the possibilities offered by the hybridization of the processes of this traditional technique with those handled in other fields related to the multiple reproduction of the image. This led him to incorporate into his work as a recorder the techniques used in the origins of photography (bichromated rubber, cyanotype), the use of the laboratory for the generation of intaglio plates from lith film, electrography as an image transfer tool. and the exploration of the digital image as a resource in the achievement of visual textures and, ultimately, a language of expression in itself.

Making his academic and artistic facets converge, in 2016 he formulated his doctoral thesis under the title 'Graphic art and technology (a private relationship)', in which, following an analysis of his work, he reveals the fluid relationships that always have had engraving and photography, and delves into the concept of what in the field of visual arts has come to be called 'digital matrix'. In addition to his work with the Galdós letters, he has collaborated with the artist José H. Afonso in the folder 'Around Galdós', published by the Cabildo de Gran Canaria in December of last year. This year he also exhibited a part of the project 'Cartas Galdós' within the framework of the First Meetings of Current Art 'The house taken', in the Miller Building in the capital of Gran Canaria.

His latest solo exhibitions include Fotofever 2019 at the International Contemporary Photography Fair (Paris, November 2019), with his series Deseo; Galateas at the 19th European Nude Photography Festival in Chapelle de Sainte Anne, Arles (May 2019); Y Fabiola Ubani.
