Biography

Domenico Ruccia (1986, Bari) uses painting as a tool to explore the concept of time, reinventing untold events within real historical contexts. Through an interweaving of reality and false history Ruccia plays with the notion of authenticity, inviting the viewer to embrace humor and underlining the importance of quotation as a matrix of new reflections. The use of a pre-existing reality also turns out to be fundamental in the collages and video works, where history is fragmented and reassembled outlining a new vision.

 

Domenico Ruccia lives and works in Milan. After completing legal studies, he fully dedicated himself to painting, attending Brera Academy of Fine Arts in 2021. Solo exhibitions include those at Iperstudio, Viareggio (2023); Collezione Pallavicini, Pavia (2023); Il Crepaccio, Milan (2021); Chiostro del Bramante, Rome (2018) and Fondazione Mario Moderni, Rome (2017).

His work has been exhibited in public and private institutions such as Galleria Civica Albani, Urbino (2023); Osservatorio Futura, Turin (2023); Galleria Arrivada, Milan (2023); YAG/garage, Pescara (2023); co_atto, Milan (2022); ArtDate, Bergamo (2021); Galleria Lorenzelli, Milan (2017) and Museo d’Arte Grafica Marchionni, Cagliari (2017).

He is among the artists included in Quadrenniale di Roma’s mapping program Panorama, with a studio visit by Lorenzo Madaro. In 2022 he was in residence at VIR Viafarini-in-residence in Milan.
