SIRO - LUX ART INSTITUTE

The abstract paintings of Italian artist Siro Cugusi defy a clear definition. The colors and textures suggest dreamlike, imaginary scenes with a variety of shapes that seem both real and surreal.
“Siro’s paintings do not correspond with reality,” agreed Reesey Shaw, the director of Lux Art Institute. His works “derive from his dreams, subconscious, fleeting thoughts and abstract ideas. He rejects traditional narrative painting to demonstrate his own personal language.” Cugusi, the current Lux resident artist, uses canvas, wood, pages from books and varied types of paper as a base.
