Manuel Fois works through the pictorial medium presents images obtained through techniques of audio conversion and digital tools for the analysis of recorded audio material. Outlining a visual communication based on glitch sequences, in an actuality in which the use of image, becomes more and more insistent, the artist makes a forced reduction of the visual content, favoring an analytical-conceptual aspect that acts as a guiding thread to his work. 

Since 2015, the artist has done thorough research on the language of glitch, recording audio material in different places, both inside and outside, then processing the audio tracks obtained, with the use of graphics processing programs, to formulate an image that, as a last step, is shown on a mirror with captivating technical attention.
Manuel Fois spontaneously decides to compare his manual techniques to the instructions imposed by the image provided by a machine. The result is an aseptic, graphic and clean painting  (serigraphy) that paradoxically conceals unexpected shapes and geometries that are able to stimulate the viewer to hear  the sound recorded in the place where the artist has worked.

Manuel Fois (b. 1995, Cagliari) lives and works in London (UK) and Milan, Italy. He studied at Central Saint Martins – University of the Arts, London; his work is characterised by a fundamental interplay between glitches and sound exploring the flux, the movement and its shape through the language of the New Aestetichs.
