On Wednesday 12 April, the artist Danilo Bucchi presents to the public his work entitled Liquid exhibited in the bright spaces of the Plaster Cast Gallery of the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art. Exhibited for the first time in 2017 during Bucchi's solo exhibition entitled Lunar Black, curated by Achille Bonito Oliva at the MACRO museum in Rome, Liquid became part of the permanent collection of the National Gallery in 2019.
Today Liquid is exhibited within the exhibition of Time is Out of Joint, in dialogue with nineteenth-century plaster casts from the plaster cast gallery and as part of the possible combinations that this great exhibition on time brings into play, with its profound rereading of the works of museum collection.
The critic Achille Bonito Oliva thus defines the artistic universe of Danilo Bucchi, capable of reaffirming the absence of time through the denial of space given by the two-dimensionality of painting.
DaniloBucchi (Rome, 1978) completed his studies in Rome, where he attended the Academy of Fine Arts, focusing on the techniques of drawing, painting and photography. From the beginning, the artist demonstrated a severe determination to root his language in a universe of signs that refers to the tradition of European abstraction of the first avant-garde, with the aid of highly technological techniques and supports. He began exhibiting in 2003, participating in numerous personal and collective exhibitions.
