CLAUDIA MAZZUCCHELLI

Claudia Mazzucchelli was born in Buenos Aires in 1964. Her artistic training began at an early age. Claudia studied with important teachers: Kenneth Kemble; Luis Benedit; and Roberto Aizemberg. She received her degree in Fine Art in 1987.

In Mazzucchelli’s work we learn that the concept of "Immobility/perfection" raises the brazen attribute of her female characters with the sense that perfection is not divine, but human. Through her paintings, she leads us to the hypotheses of the antithesis (of the opposites), exposing the ironies and the humor of them all.

Mazzucchelli’s paintings are metaphysical – a style already found in the work of De Chirico, Berni or Antonio Donghi – but unlike her predecessors, she expresses a contemporary sensibility…aware of her arrangements and a ‘founder’ of new symbols. Mazzucchelli’s characters are disturbing muses with half closed, huge almond shaped eyes and pursed mouths, some crossing their legs in gestures almost sacrilegious in relation to what’s allowed in contemporary art. Yet, they all seem to smile a surreptitious smile, as if in between the lines of humor – very much like girls whispering in the presence of strangers.

Mazzucchelli’s works are part of key collections in Argentina, Europe and North America. She has participated in several solo and collective exhibitions in Argentina, USA and throughout Europe. More notable exhibits included: Heart of Stick, BM Contemporary Art, Buenos Aires 2011; MIART 2008, Milano Italy; Eyestorm 2008, London, UK; Expansive Link, Texas, USA 2008; Braga Menéndez 2006; CC Barceloneta, Barcelona, Spain 2003; Three Walls, 1997, Mazzucchelli-Jitrik-Burgos, the Shameless Exhibition, 1996, Recoleta, Argentina.

In 1998, Claudia moved to Spain. She paints and enjoys the company of ex-pat Argentinians as co-owner of Buenos Ayres Café Cultural in Palma de Mallorca, which opened in 2011.
