Riccardo Mazzei
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Windsor Terrace



ARTIST STATEMENT: Having engaged subjects as diverse as political icons, natural and animal elements and human portrait my work reproduces emotionally charged pictorial language, arranging them into new conceptually layered pieces. These themes are combined into a collages that feature a traditional Chinese sketchings painted monochrome, juxtaposed on green tea treated paper with iron oxidations, and often embellished with uncoated white painted stenciled multilinguist text. The color white reinforce the real quality of words, suggests sense of time, and formally connect the disparate parts in each picture. The texts from fragments of poems and cubist representative provide clues to content and interpretation. I use a variety of different papers and processes in each project with consistent methodology. The subject matter of each body of work determines the materials and the forms of the work. Each project often consists of multiple works, in a collage media, grouped around the following themes and meanings: Joss Paper, in representation of Mediterranean symbols; Green Paper, in honor of poetry and alchemy and Stereo Paper in offering of pagan gods. During research and production new areas of interest arise and lead to the next body of work.
