About The Artwork

"Egg stall" is an oil pastel on paper inspired by a place where I loved to spend my saturday morning when I was living in London: Stoke Newington Farmers' market, the first and only all-organic market in the city. I spent almost 3 years in London and, despite having changed house many time, I was like enough to never live too far from this wonderful market, where you can buy seasonal produce and other goodies like honey and bread! There was even a coffee stall that served coffee in proper cups (I'd hate to drink my coffee in a plastic or disposable cup!). I love to depict scenes like these, as they have everything: buildings, trees, people, still life...and even graphic design if one counts the blackboard at the entrance advertising what's available on the day, and the wonderful labels that tells you more about the fruit and vegetables on display and how to consume them! My artworks dedicate to Stoke Newington Farmers' market are becoming a series within the series dedicate to London. Now that I live in Agerola (on the Amalfi Coast) again, I am going through all the photographs I took when I was living in London and make drawings from them. This is a wonderful way for me to pay homage and remember a moment in my life when I was very happy and a place on Earth that I quickly learned to love: London. Making these drawings is like living there again, even if only for few hours. The technique used (oil pastel on paper) is related to the city as well, as I first started using Sennelier oil pastels while living in London. this technique gives me the chance and the time to focus on every tiny details and to celebrate the richness and vibrancy of the moments I captured with my camera at the time. This, like all the artworks from this series, has been treated with two to three layers of fixing spray; nonetheless I advise to promptly frame it with a glass too, to protect it from the dust.

"Mary Cinque is an Italian painter, graphic designer and blogger working and living in the Amalfi Coast. Her works – joyful, bright, colourful painting and drawings – are inspired by this place, as well as her heritage, background and travels. Mary spent her childhood between Italy and Ethiopia. Before moving back to the Amalfi Coast in 2019, she has lived in Naples and Milan, where she attended academies of fine art; and Philadelphia, New York and London where she improved her artistic skills and style. Alongside making art, she works as an illustrator and graphic designer, collaborating with selected brands, working on artistic commissions such as illustrations, labels and showroom design. Cinque’s art develops themes connected with what makes us essentially humans: our habitat – the buildings, the streets, the cities – our bodies, what we eat and how we socialise. Art, in Mary’s paintings, becomes a powerful instrument of philosophical investigation which reveals who we really are by questioning our habits, observing those characteristic traits we share as a species, often without realising it. The artist looks at human beings from a different perspective, making interesting and significant what can seem normal or banal to us in our everyday life: the buildings that populate our cities, the streets we walk, people sitting across our table at a café, strangers on the bus. In this nutshell interview by Giulia Corti, Mary Cinque explores some of the most relevant aspects of her art and reflects on how it offers an intriguing and informative perspective about the way we live as human animals. Mary, your art is colourful and vivid, it mixes human and urban subjects by making use of various techniques (oil painting; pastel drawing, markers, “digital” drawing, print-making etc.) and materials (canvasses, magazine pages, an I-pad screen). How do you choose the means with which to develop an artwork and how do the different materials and techniques influence what you want to convey, if they do? Different subjects call for different techniques. Buildings and urbanscape are always acrylic on canvas, while I prefer to depict people using a quicker, immediate approach, like the one that I can get with markers and oil pastels or digital painting. By looking at the main themes of your art, it is possible to notice what seems to be a tension. On one hand, you portrayed the stillness and artificiality of urban landscapes and buildings (e.g.
