My complete exhibtion ‘All Consuming’ will open at The Museum in the Park on 19th July until 27th August – a taster of the 70 piece exhibition will be live on my face book page soon………..
Quietly intense, strikingly thoughtful, urgent yet reserved, Cleo Mussi wrestles the grand themes of human existence from inspirational idea to intricately detailed mosaic narrative – in grand style. Following on from her highly successful touring exhibition ‘Pharmas Market’, Mussi revisits the collective and personal modern predicaments we find ourselves in by taking us on a journey that spans the recent evolution of our avaricious yet all too aware species. In ‘All Consuming’ Art meets Science in a dramatic exposition that leaves us in no doubt as to the precariousness of our current situation, served with an undercurrent of Mussi’s trademark humour that at least allows us to laugh at our folly even if it refuses to offer any easy solutions.
The major pieces comment on the interaction of human life with the natural world in all its pain and vast potential. ‘Nature Recycles Everything’, reflects an overarching motif; there is nothing we grow, make, consume, use, dispose of or attempt to destroy that ever escapes the truth of the law of conservation of energy
With this Opus Cleo Mussi reveals the evolving work of the demiurge – capturing our transient influence on the planet and forcing us to confront our motivations – but still allowing us to be distracted by a witty detail, a wry observation, hidden beauty.
