Five years in the making and an odyssey in its creation, artist Marco Luccio presents Tales from The Greek art exhibition and book launch at fortyfivedownstairs.
This exhibition will be one of the biggest in scale and ambition in over thirty years of Luccio’s international art career. It features large canvasses, found objects, drypoints, etchings, charcoal drawings, collagraphs, ink, mixed media, pencil and monotypes.
Tales from The Greek will also feature a collaboration between Luccio and award-winning author John Hughes. After their 2013 critically acclaimed collaboration, The Garden of Sorrows, the pair have come together again for this stunning collection of eight narrative adaptations of Greek myths and tragedies.
