Group Show at Winsor Gallery in Vancouver

** Press Release:

Winsor Gallery announces the upcoming exhibition entitled Perplexities: Space, Form, and Image. The exhibition runs from March 1st – March 28th. An opening will be held on the evening of March 2nd, from 6-8pm; several of the artists will be in attendance. 

The exhibition Perplexities: Space, Form, and Image seeks to investigate the unaccountable, and each piece evokes questions, wonder and confusion. The artwork encourages the audience to make their own connection with perplexity and explore how these works may relate to our own judgements and understanding of the human condition.

Perplexities: Space, Form, and Image presents and challenges the way we consider the various aspects of bodies and spaces, materiality, identity and our environment. Painting against photograph, portal versus realism, materiality against medium, subject against subjectivity, or ambiguity against modality all suggest perplexing distortions of a dual reality.   Perplexities: Space, Form and Image forces the viewer to contemplate and connect with what they are looking at and the perplexing questions being asked. Each nartist within the exhibition presents a juxtaposition of “the new” against a background of traditional constructs. From geometric blocks suspended in space, to meticulously manipulated textiles, to overly saturated colourful canvases, the works are influenced by the artists materiality, identity, object and spatiality.  Connected by their artistry, description and questions, the works explore the complexities inherent in each piece, and in dialogue with another.

Modernica / Fucci Case Study® Arm Shell Rocker

The Fiberglass Shell Chair is easily one of the most important and recognizable designs of the twentieth century. They were originally designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1948, as an entry in The Museum of Modern Art’s International Design Competition. At the time, no one could possibly have anticipated the massive success and longevity of this iconic design. LA based furniture brand Modernica have given Fucci the chance to put a new take on this iconic design. The chair features an acrylic painted bird pattern floated on a sunflower yellow fiberglass shell. The chair can be seen at OOG in Toronto until 7 April, 2017.

"Soup Du Jour" Solo Exhibition Opens at OOG

*** For Immediate Release ***

Following a successful run of exhibitions in the United States and Europe, we are proud to present post-pop artist Fucci’s premier solo exhibition at OnlyOneGallery

SOUP DU JOUR, with its reference to a rotating roster of flavours or themes, is an apt title for Fucci’s premier solo show of 2017. Rather than remain within the traditional boundaries of a gallery show, SOUP DU JOUR presents a vibrant mixture of themes and mediums, including limited edition lifestyle collaborations, prints, and paintings. 

Fucci’s bright and bold colours bring to life pieces of scenes; often we do not get the whole picture but are left with an impression that something comical or sexual (or both) has just, or is just about to, take place. Women’s faces are obscured by their hair, blue birds appear from behind zippers and in between breasts. Fucci’s work provides the viewer with a stylized, dynamic, and slightly absurd slice of life – a slice that never remains exactly the same from piece to piece.
