111th Meeting Artist
Anthony Lucian Cauchi
Painter and Sculptor
The 111th Art Discussion Group Meeting will be held on Thursday 25th April 2013 at 19.15hrs at MISCO OFFICE (first floor) in Fino Building in Notabile Road, Mriehel.
For this meeting the Society is inviting Anthony Lucian Cauchi (b.1948) a painter in soft pastel and a sculptor who has exhibited a collection of sculptural works: ‘Fire Inside’ at the Malta Society of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce between March 14 and April 26, 2013.
The artist is presenting his unique collection of 28 sculpture and ceramic works on screen and will answer questions from the floor regarding his vision, concept, technique and career. Naturally the artist will inevitably discuss the need to change from painting to sculpture and the passion or fire inside him that inspire his work.
His sculpture, quite bizarre is seeped in symbolism, mythology and classical history. The works seem like high relief painted in vivid colours and the word ‘pittorico’ with reference to them might raise eyebrows and instil a discussion.
ADG invites its members, their friends and the general public to this cultural and artistic event. His web site is: www.anthony luciancauchi.webs.com
Anthony, born in Qormi and presently living in St. Julians, organized several personal exhibitions locally and abroad as painter, sculptor and designer. In 1984 and in 1986 the artist won a bronze medal at the International Postal Union Art Competition held in Lugano, Switzerland and in Rome, Italy.
He has exhibited works in London, Helsinki and Perugia. Anthony is planning a retrospective exhibition in 2014.
ADG is also presenting Michael Vella in a short introduction showing his mosaic work and sculpture in carved wood.
