Mauro Perucchetti will unveil a new series of immersive sculptural 3D paintings in a highly anticipated solo exhibition in St. Moritz, Switzerland. Perucchetti rose to fame for his pigmented resin Jelly Babies, originally inspired by cloning, and medical ethics continue to push the boundaries of minimalist abstract art with his new three-dimensional sculptural paintings. Capture the sensory immersive experience of nature and put it on canvas.
For the exhibition entitled SUPERFICI, Perucchetti married painting and sculpture, working with pigment, oil paint and mixed media to render 3D textured surfaces on canvas that evoked the movement and sensation of nature. .
âWhile not quite sculptures, works of art are definitely three-dimensional paintings. For the materials I used you could say it’s like mixing oil and water but I made it work in sync. The process has turned out to be the perfect analogy to what happens in nature. As the earth passes from one natural phenomenon to another, new life emerges â,
The exhibition is named after a term coined by the late painter Enrico Castellani: SURFACE or surfaces. Perucchetti has built a reputation for himself as a master of sculpture and reinterpretation of the familiar with a provocative and socially conscious aesthetic. To paint in 3D. the former architect turned contemporary artist let nature inspire him to create lush textured surfaces that immerse the viewer in a sea of ââcolors, shadows and reflections. Its revolutionary approach combined with a vibrant palette gives the effect of an organic and vivid topography that draws the viewer in and allows for a different experience every time a Perucchetti 3D painting is seen.

Pop artist of the 21st century, Mauro Perucchetti addresses pressing social issues and conveys the pulse of contemporary culture: Barbie, Sex and the city, and the world economy have all found their place in his works. For example, the birth of Dolly, the first cloned animal, and the ensuing debate over the ethics of cloning, prompted him to create âJelly Babies,â Pillsbury Doughboy-like figurines that serve as a metaphor for cloned human beings. Like Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons and Piero Manzoni, to whom his work playfully references, Peruchetti uses vivid colors, recognizable shapes and smooth, shiny surfaces to draw in his viewers. Perucchetti has worked with a variety of materials, ranging from Swarovski crystals to steel, but the 5+ years he has spent developing his technique of working with pigmented resin has made it his signature.
