Artist: Daniel Cicchelli
1. in such a manner that the inner surface becomes the outer
2. in or into a state of disarray often involving drastic reorganization.
With the urge and the will to expose his eclectic inner world to those outside, Daniel Cicchelli’s latest exhibition takes on both the literal and emotional context of its title. The show debuts with a first Friday open house mixer outside the Number House, 3632 Heidelberg Street, from 5:30-8:30 PM with live music and beer from Detroit's own Atwater Brewery.
A lover of many mediums, Cicchelli delves deeper into large scale painting as he delves even deeper into his own artistic identity.”In constant contemplation as to what my work is about, a process that is surely never-ending, I am confident that my reason for creating art lies in something very unprocessed, visceral, and crude,” says the 25 year-old artist. It is this rawness that drew the POST-HAB community to Cicchelli’s work. “I am interested in the organic formation of unrestrained thoughts exposed in tangible forms,” he explains. “These forms are my canvases.”
A BFA recipient out of Wayne State University, Cicchelli is also practiced in Sculpture and is fueled by music performance and travel, the interactions between these passions allowing more and more of his world into ours. An emerging artist on a mission to reveal his inner workings to himself as much as to his viewers, Cicchelli is poised to deliver intensive meditations that are right at home within the whimsy and grit of Tyree Guyton’s Heidelberg Project.
