Patrizia Mancuso at the Chianciano Biennale 2013
By Victoria Ludwig
Patrizia Mancuso’s Chairs4eyes collection show the artist’s revision of the traditional purpose of chairs enriched by unique magnificence and personality. Using 4 different techniques – collage, graphics, sculpture, and paint – Mancuso demonstrates her innovative nature, transforming intangible to tangible and convenience to splendor. Curators of the Museum of Art of Chianciano admire and selected her work to be exhibited at the Chianciano Biennale 2013. This year the Chianciano Biennale is a wonderful occasion not only to relax and lean back in the heart of Tuscany along with an outstanding art program from the 7th until the 14th of September, envisioned by the same professionals who were part of the organization of the London Biennale, but also to see Patrizia Mancuso's outstanding oevre surrounded by an artistic atmosphere and gathering.
Patrizia Mancuso’s masterpieces, which were displayed around the world at several exhibitions in Switzerland, Europe and Asia, caught the attention of international art professionals and lovers, mesmerized by the artist’s exceptional style. The artist’s surrealist painting style is enforced by hyperrealist elements formed by stimuli of the external world as well as internal emotion: "Canvases are my psychoanalyst, every time I finish a work, I fight or defeat recurring fears". As a self- taught artist, Mancuso combines multiple techniques such as paint, sculpture, graffiti and collage like no other. Her desire to give shape to thought and emotion adds a personal element to Mancuso’s work, which not only fascinates, but also absorbs you into dialogue between you, her and the medium.
