The unknown is the destination for Cugusi and he uses symbols from the forest to get there. In so doing, he leaves reality behind and bends the rules of the universe. He juxtaposes familiar images with indiscernible ones and combines representation and abstraction to create an alternate world that is poetically tuned and dramatically heightened in which we find ideas, experiences, ideals, sufferings, hopes, myths, dreams and nightmares.

Siro Cugusi (born 1980, Sardinia) received an MFA and BFA in Painting from the Academy of Fine Arts, Sassari. He has had solo exhibitions at Agencia De Transitos Culturales, Tenerife, Spain (2019); Annarumma Gallery, Naples (2019); Galleri Kant, Copenhagen (2018); and Lux Art Institute, Encinitas, California (2017). His work has been included in group exhibitions including those at Steve Turner, Los Angeles (2019); Belmacz, London (2018); Galleri Kant, Copenhagen (2018); Anna Zorina Gallery, New York (2017) and DB Fine Art, Saint-Tropez (2017). This is Cugusi’s debut solo exhibition at Steve Turner.
