Andrea Morucchio (born in Venice, 1967) starts his photographic career in 1989 after receiving a degree in Political Science at the University of Padua. He produces sculptures, installations, performances or videos often based on socio-political considerations which were influenced by long stays in Cuba and Nepal.
Through this multi-facet diversity of works, he currently creates paintings made of fragments, small pieces, layers and bits of pictures looking like the ancient technique of Mosaic. The series called Puzzling Identity is inspired by important works and masters of the Renaissance from Leonardo to Botticelli or Giorgione to Titian. The mix up of various fragments recomposes a new iconic figure evoking the original in a new light. The Renaissance’s images are re-elaborated in a chromatic fragmentation where each element is a piece of memory. Morucchio aims to offer a refined relationship between art and the past.
