“Domenica Bucalo produces images then she xeroxes them: the contrast among surreal characters – absurd and paradoxical urban landscapes – and the simple characteristic of the xerox copy technique, create a sort of visual misplacement.“ – Gabi Scardi, Flash Art Magazine
Bucalo’s images express everyday desires and fears by translating and visualizing those moments. It’s an approach that does not judge nor offer solutions, but simply reports on life and human nature.
Her work plays with the concept of time, vision, memory—the way we change, what exactly makes us change, and our desire to turn back time. Memories are essential to every human being they help us define our identity.
Ms. Bucalo lives in Brooklyn, NY, with her son Milo and her husband Fabrizio. She is currently a visual correspondent for Vogue Italia and the founder of DB Environments llc.
“Environments are a state of mind.”– Domenica Bucalo
