Dario Guccio

Dario Guccio (b. 1988, Napoli, Italy) is influenced by the practices of Italian masters, reinvigorating the aesthetics of both ZERO and Dadaism.

Guccio’s works consist of compositions of stylized images of human figures, which are produced with cutouts, layers, and stitched sheets of synthetic leather and card. Silhouetted bodies and faces in profile and anthropomorphic forms overlap, penetrate, and conceal one another in turn, suggesting a sense of intimacy only comparable to the action of skin brushing against each other. Poised between abstraction and figuration, these compositions encroach upon a mythological dimension. The figure that assumes the roles of woman, mother, and lover is one of the most recurring features in Guccio’s iconography. With references to Italian Modernism—the works of Lucio Fontana, Agostino Bonalumi, and Paolo Scheggi among others, Guccio’s works suggest an interpretation as a fragmented mythology of creation, which intersects the accounts of the artist’s birth and the formalization of his creative language.

Dario Guccio received his BFA from Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in 2013.

The artist currently lives and works in Milan.
