20 new pieces by Mauro Perucchetti, will open at Halcyon Gallery at 24 Bruton Street. This is Perucchetti’s second show at the gallery, following the success of Apopalyptic in 2008. Perucchetti presents a critique of our society with his remarkable sculptures created from a variety of materials including coloured polyurethane resin, gold leaf, Swarovski crystals, and a new medium for him, marble. The works in this exhibition can be divided into three groups: Modern Day Heroes, Hip Pop and Daily News. Perucchetti’s aesthetic harkens back to the streamlined Arte Povera movement that grew as a hybrid of pop and political art in 1960s Italy. It is a re-imagination of traditional pop art sensibilities, a mirror of the material desires and so called needs of our society today.
