Lot 310 - Marco Bizzarri - Still Standing, Studio II
Marco Bizzarri (b. 1988, Santiago) is a Chilean artist based in West Sussex, England. Marco deals with memory, commemoration and archive through painting, installation and video. In his work, research processes and materiality are subordinated to context. On the one hand, linked to the experiential encounter, and on the other, to the geographical positioning (rural-industrial territories), so that fieldwork, involvement with the landscape and human testimony are fundamental.
He graduated from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile with a BA in Fine Arts (2014)
Turps art school painting programme (2021)
Recent solo exhibitions include Unearthed at Unit 1 Gallery Workshop in London and Incuria at Galería Animal in Chile. He has participated in a number of group exhibitions including Recursion at The Split Gallery (London, 2023) Fauna Presents Auction at Arundel Castle (Arundel, 2023) But dearer still is truth at Plato Gallery (Portugal 2023) Gilbert Bayes Award Exhibition, Royal Society of Sculptors at Cromwell Place (London, 2022), Friends with benefits, Safehouse 2 (London 2022) RSS GBA Exhibition at CASC Gallery, University of Chester (Chester, 2022), Royal Society of Portrait Painters Annual Exhibition at Mall Galleries (London, 2021), "XIV Premio MAVI arte joven" at MAVI Museum (Chile, 2020), Habitantes at Centro Cultural Matta (Argentina,2019), Cohabitar at Cede Galería (Perú, 2016), Outsider at the Gare of Strasbourg (France, 2014), and The Young Collectors Exhibition at the Leila Heller Gallery (USA, 2013).

Statement About AOAP Submitted Artwork
His paintings respond to the exercise of collecting and translating images by delving into the material possibilities of pictorial language. The result combines abstraction and figuration: the images show the multiple resources with which they have been constructed. By rescuing objects, events, people or places - which run the risk of being forgotten - the artist composes situations that link different spaces, times and actors in a single image. An exercise that responds to the need to give visibility to those fleeting things coming from an autobiographical context that shows events of the artist's daily life. His painting reveals as much as it conceals. The gesture of covering the form, through dripping, reveals itself as a means of silencing his images and at the same time charging them with a singular graphic and chromatic expression where light and darkness coexist on the same plane
