If you can’t pronounce “Zanzucchi”, Zucchini works too.
My work in the realm of contemporary art spans over a wide range of mediums and style that are to say A LOT about myself. I am inspired by the stress of social normalities that I face on a day-to-day basis and this concept of “growing up”, which I represent through figures, facial expressions, and their interactions with architecture and design elements. I enjoy distorted ideas of form, scale, and placement within my work as well as witty comments or phrases. It’s all a lot of stuff that sometimes makes people laugh or feel uncomfortable...
Weather its painting, collaging, or taking photos with my Goodwill point n’ shoots, I continue to make art in order to stay involved with myself. I think it’s really easy to get wrapped up in this quickly changing world we live in, and lose whatever the definition of “self” means to us. I am always trying to push the boundaries of my work, and its underlying message to viewers and hopefully chip away at what makes me, me.
