BIOGRAPHY

 

Guido Aurisicchio was born in Naples (Italy).
He approaches painting since the seventy years beginning the first instructive experiences.
He comes into contact with the neapolitan artistic environment and carries out researches concerning with visual perception.
In 1976 he moves to Rome and begines the experimentation, (going deep into) methodically studying in depth all that concerning art side, urged by a (strong) deep interior necessity.
The real operating period begins in 1989, after having seen the Mirò posthumous exhibition (Rome), with his last works.
The basic reason which has led him to the painting way consisted in the impossibility of expressing his unconscious (seething) world seething.
For many years on end the research work, as said, developed on art experimentation and consideration plan and all that, in artist's opinion, is connected to, on any experience level, even if apparently distant. The main point is he detect a thread, too finest, which lead to art: that's a full of difficulties and hindrances way.
His studies on the C.G.Jung's psychology, meditation and Zen of course were decisive factors.
Well, in 1989 the Mirò's exhibition, the last Mirò, the one used to paint blobs of paint, sets off the magic: that had been an inconstant and hard-fought experience becomes continuous, anyway remaining hard-fought.
In such period Guido Aurisicchio adjusts a personal technique based in the use of poor materials: sponges, rags, old brushes, wood and others. He uses acrylic colours and so much water.
At first the work is informal, later takes shape and progressively leads the artist into the interior of a visionary world, in whitch a sensitive and careful observer may recognizes places of his own imagination or unconscious, as if the picture aimed at producing different and variegated inner resonances.
Aurisicchio has not been inspired particularly by any pattern besides that by himself has conceived; nevertheless he sincerely admires great artists as Bosh, Dix, Mirò, Bacon and Klee.
