In his work, Italian artist Alessio Mazzarulli addresses the passage of time. Shredding and recycling the paper that he comes across in daily life: bills, receipts, invoices, business plans and magazines, he creates thickly layered artworks that show a distorted glimpse of the past. A faded memory, eroded by time, the details of a face, almost forgotten – he captures these moments and incorporates them into his work to create a testimony of human existence.
"I like to find new ways, new paths, new techniques, new materials, and use them to convey a message."
Alessio Mazzarulli currently lives and works in Francavilla al mare, Italy.
