New York Postcards

9 - 20 April

NEW YORK POSTCARDS’ is a 64 page hardcover book ($35) and its launch will accompany Luccio’s exhibition of original postcards and cityscapes from Manhattan, continuing until 20 April

New York Postcards began ten years ago when Marco Luccio began collecting used postcards and envelopes from New York’s flea markets and second hand shops, drawn by their fragile beauty and the ephemeral quality of the stories they contained.

Now the previously disposable histories are layered with sketches, paintings and prints inspired by the artist’s drawing excursions to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

This rich and fascinating collection of mixed media works overflows with Luccio’s irrepressible energy and with delightful references to the figures of Picasso, Modigliani and classical Greek and Roman sculpture, often leaving tantalising glimpses of the hand-written messages, stamps and postmarks underneath.
