Cycle "Appropriazioni inattuali"
Within this cycle of figurative paintings, Zucchi reinterprets a series of old photographs from the 19th century. The artist translates the black and white originals in the language of painting.
„Whether creating an abstract composition, or a pictorial blob, I reflect the possible combinations. More than the flow of life, it is the stasis of images that fascinates me, above all, those of a world, which I do not know and would like to make my own by translating it into painting“
Milanese artist Andrea Zucchi is one of the most exciting italian artists working today. Critically acclaimed, the painter is known for his representation of the “New Italian Figuration” in Western art. Conversant with a wide typology of styles, subjects, and techniques, from abstraction to realism Zucchi synthesizes different traditions and genres in his work while seeking to counter stereotypical depictions of Photo-Realism.
As Zucchi himself explained, his artistic quest is quite unique. Inspired by Titian, Velázquez, Rembrandt, Manet, Degas and through the deepened observations and researches of Egyptian and Etruscan art, he tries to find the deeper meaning of an image, a memory or a thought, by relating it or connecting it in one way or another „with something else, another reproduction, a memory, a thought, resuscitate it in painting, enliven it with color, delimit its metaphysical limits with geometrical marks and fields“ (Sergio Risaliti, Foundation Stelline, Milan). Based on these connections, he manages to bring fascinating fantasy worlds to life in a work of art and to create scenes conveying obscure and macabre narratives.
Zucchi is known for his complex paintings, which thematically explore the meeting point between creative labour, consciousness, art history, consumer culture, and nature.
Zucchis Kunstwerke wurden in verschiedenen international renommierten Museen und Stiftungen ausgestellt wie: PAC – Padiglione d’Arte Contemporanea, Palazzo Reale Museo della Permanente “ (Mailand), MART – Museo di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto, (Rovereto, Trento), Museo di Cento (Ferrara), Hubei Museum of Art (Wuhan, China).
Back in 2008 Andrea Zucchi had a solo exhibition at the Foundation "Durini“ and in 2013 at the Foundation "Stelline“, both in Milan and among the most important art foundations in Italy. In 2015 his work was exhibited at the prominent Foundarion "Sandretto Re Rebaudengo“ in Turin: Praestigium - Contemporary Artists from Italy“. His work has been featured in the most important Biennials, including Venice Biennale (56th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, 2015), where he took part in 2015 with the exhibition „Origins of Civilization“.
