About The Artwork

"Yellow fruit" is an oil pastel on paper made from a photograph I took while I was living in London. Our last home there, before moving back to the Amalfi Coast, was on Stoke Newington High Street and I can see this shop ("Sirvan") just looking outside my window. I love that as I can see and draw people on the street (one of my favourite subjects) from the comfort of my home and without being seen, which is crucial for me, as I like to depict people when they act naturally and they are not posing. What I love about London is that you can see people from many walks of life, and the area where we were living at the time (Stoke Newington/ Dalston) was especially rich and interesting in that way. I could spend hours just looking outside my windows, admiring the beautiful people passing by, their outfits, their movements, imagining the life they would lead. Sennelier oil pastels are my favourite medium at the moment and using them to paint and draw is just amazing for me, every time I am working on a new piece of art I feel like I am traveling in time, back to the place and the moment when I first saw the scene, and it's like living it again. I hope this artwork will transport you to London, a city full of surprises. This artwork is made with Sennelier oil pastels, a great brand with a rich history: these pastels were in fact invented for Pablo Picasso, and although he is not among my favourite artists, it is nice to think about walking in the steps of such famous artists, when using them. I like to think as my art more related to artists such as Andy Warhol for the use of colour and focus on everyday life objects, and Edward Hopper, for the way I look at people in an urban context. This, like all the artworks from this series, has been treated with three layers of fixing spray; nonetheless I advise to promptly frame it with a glass too, to protect it from the dust. Signed with my initials on the front and my full signature at the back. Agerola, 19th January 2022

"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.
