Born in the farming village of Morro d’Alba in the Marches in 1949, Enzo Cucchi was raised in poverty. He is a self-taught painter and sculptor and in his earlier years, was interested in poetry and music. ⠀

Although Cucchi maintains a studio in Rome, he rarely spends extended periods away from his native land in the Marches; his strong affinity with his birthplace is evident in his work, many of which are dominated by the hillsides and landscapes associated with the Marches.⠀

Enzo Cucchi, in an interview with Achille Bonito Oliva:⠀

Cucchi does not paint in his studio for the sake of love for the practice – in fact, the artist often finds himself disgusted with the materials and tools he uses to paint because they smell, they soil, and make him dirty. But it is not something he can do without. ⠀

Cucchi started painting because he had a vision to create an entirely new world using his brushes and it is that constant need to amaze himself that keeps him returning to the studio.⠀

A key character of the Arte Povera movement is the juxtaposition of the real against the image of the real. Presented in this image is Mario Merz's Saturn (1983 - 1985) - a real preserved iguana against an enlarged image of the iguana. ⠀

The museum is open Mondays to Saturdays, from 12pm to 7pm. Entry is free! ⠀

Painted in 2002, this work by Sandro Chia's "Onanism, Altruism, Tourism" is a typical work by him where the motif stems from Christian mythology. ⠀

Set against the lush green of the forest, the nude man carries a gentle expression, reminding us of a scene in the Garden of Eden. However, the words that emerge in what seems like a dialogue between the man and his dog (onanism, altruism, tourism, imperial, material, bacterial) strongly suggests the products of a rapidly developing civilisation. ⠀

Onanism, Altruism, Tourism by Sandro Chia is now on view at #ChallengingBeauty #ParkviewMuseumSG along with two more of his works. ⠀

Best known for his neo-expressionist paintings and sculptures, Sandro Chia was one of the key figures in the Italian Transavanguardia movement back in the 1970s through the 1980s. ⠀

Chia was born in 1946 in Florence, Italy. He attended the Istituto d'Arte and then the Accademia di Belle Arti where he graduated in 1969. He moved to Rome a year later where he gradually shifted away from his conceptual works, gravitating towards a more figurative style of painting. ⠀

Since then, Chia has exhibited throughout Europe and the United States, especially in New York City where he lived and worked for about 20 years. He still continues to work between his studios in Miami and Rome and his winery near Montalcino. ⠀

In this quote, Chia compares the art of painting to the art of winemaking. He believes these two processes to be reflective of each other, which is why he practices both simultaneously. ⠀

Besides being an artist, Sandro Chia is a professional winemaker and the founder of Castello Romitoria - a winery near Montalcino, Italy. After acquiring the land in 1984, he spent 2 years restoring the property. Since then, the winery has produced exquisite tuscan wines, grappa and olive oil. ⠀

If there's one thing we love more than taking pictures of people taking pictures, it's pictures! More precisely your pictures. Remember to hashtag us at #ParkviewMuseumSG, we're reposting our favourites!

Music in the Darkness is a typical work of the early Transavantgarde period done by Mimmo Paladino in 1984. It is a symbiosis of painterly and sculptural elements with very strong figurative motifs. ⠀

In the early 70s, Paladino devoted himself almost entirely to drawing. It was only towards the 80s when he began to experiment with different techniques and materials such as etching, aquatint and woodcut, just like the artwork we have here. ⠀

Mimmo Paladino’s Music in the Darkness is now on view at #ChallengingBeauty #ParkviewMuseumSG

Born in Paduli in 1948, Mimmo Paladino’s birth name is Domenico Paladino. His uncle was a painter and through him, Paladino developed an interest in art and was enrolled into an art school at 16. ⠀

Between 1982 to 1985, Paladino’s frequent travels to Brazil begin to heavily influence his work with a sense of primitive animism, allowing a twofold nature to develop in his work over time. ⠀

He is a "southern artist, from the mysterious gloomy south", which is why he paints a completely dark picture similarly to a sunny picture - for the latter, he attributes to his trips to Brazil, where he found "poetic sensations that belong to [him]". ⠀

Momentarium
Stéphane Masson
.
With the prevalence of social & mass media, would we consider our recorded memories & moments to be timeless or ephemeral? In Momentarium, Stéphane Masson asks if Time can truly be captured & preserved by the use of technology.
.
This installation was created over the course of several months in an open call that saw public volunteers recorded as they smiled, laughed, grimaced, gesticulated & danced before our cameras. These briefly filmed sequences are projected onto 280 glass jars that are stacked across a wall, a monument of captured moments.
.
Locked in space but not frozen, the images appear simultaneously transient & immortalised. In observing the scale of the installation, one might say that it reflects a pervasive human desire to capture, store & share memories & occurrences even as we question how such images can be distinguished when viewed en masse.
.
Providing an opportunity for viewers to contribute to this wall of moments, two cameras are positioned on each side of the jars to capture a fleeting moment of visitors to the artwork, via a live feed.
.
About the Artist:
Stéphane Masson (b. 1972, France) is a self-taught artist who initially worked as a master light technician in theatres. He started to explore the medium of videos as artwork in 2004. This videographer appropriates mundane objects with the help of the moving picture. Answering an urge to inject a bit of craziness & magic in the everyday, he transforms our environment through unexpected encounters. He participated as the designer in the artwork Le Vaisseau (using holographic solutions) which won the first prize for Heritage & Innovation for an Immersive Device in 2016.

A lot of Mimmo Paladino's artworks are dominated with figures, animals, masks and the theme of death. However, he chooses to disclose little on the recurring motifs too much, saying that "they are the roots out of which the picture develops but not its content". Instead, he asks that people discuss about his artistic technique. ⠀
