About this title


Dust jacket is edge worn.

From Publishers Weekly:

Prominent Italian artist Enzo Cucci evokes a strange, apocalyptic world in his small drawings. In one, a quasi-human figure is caught in a whirlwind that razes everything to the ground; the vortex itself takes the form of a horrific face. In another, a teetering coach drawn by a gaunt horse carries two trees and a house; the coachman stretches to embrace a wheel suspended in mid-air, reminiscent of a sun disc. Perucchi-Petri, a Swiss curator, deciphers Cucchi's symbolic dramas mixing private and archetypal images as enigmatic messages of hope. The existential landscape is littered with angry seas, piled-up skulls, mysterious floating oval objects, while the artist himself, a bent figure with a radiant spine, reaches for blackbirds "as if he wanted them to carry him to Heaven." Neither surrealist nor literal symbolist, Cucci gives his imagination free reign in the kingdom of chaos.
