Enzo Cucchi





Cucchi, Enzo. - Italian painter (b. Morro d'Alba 1949). He was self-taught by dedicating himself to painting and poetry. From the mid-seventies, after moving to Rome, after a research oriented towards conceptualism, expressed in various installations, he turned to painting, working closely with S. Chia and F. Clemente. With them and with N. De Maria and M. Paladino he became one of the protagonists of the trans-avant-garde, developing a language of neo-expressionist matrix that was progressively enriched with a recurring figurative and symbolic vocabulary. In his works, which tend more and more to a monumental scale, C. used different materials (metal, wood, terracotta, neon), located in the exhibition space or inserted into the painting.
