66: Marco Rosichelli


Marco Rosichelli's artwork is usually interactive, always playful, and at times, absurd.

"As an artist, I see myself relating to that idea of Peter Pan, a mischievous boy who can fly and refuses to grow up," Rosichelli says in his artist's statement. "In a post industrial society, the boundaries between youth and adult have blurred, and youthfulness has become an acceptable and revered character attribute, regardless of age. I make installations, videos, and art objects that are engaging, fun and playful, but that require thoughtfulness and reflection."

1. List five things on your Inspiration Wall (real or imagined).

I find inspiration in humor, incongruity, interaction, spectating and the people around me, including, but not limited to Jana Evans , Peter Bugg, and Kjellgren Alkire.

2. What was your last big project?
My last big project consisted of a large-scale, wintery wonderland installation, complete with snowman and squirrel. This project, carved from foam and coated with resin and paint, was an investigation into something I have never experienced before ... building a snowman.

I was also recently in a two person show at The New Mexico Museum of Art in Santa Fe.

3. What's your next big project?
I am currently working on a project for the Arizona State University Art Museum's upcoming show titled Open for Business. This show is a collaboration between several local artists paired with businesses on Mill Avenue. Look for my piece when the show opens in October.

4. Why do you do what you do?
I have always been fascinated with life's absurdities, and enjoy making work that point to them.
For example with my piece "Spring Fetus" (pictured below), I created a "baby human" to parody the already existing "baby animals" that currently populate community parks.

5. What's something you want Phoenix to know about you? (And, if you're game, what's something you really don't want Phoenix to know about you?)

I actually love the weather here.

Oh yeah, I also love playing field hockey. If you are interested in a great group of people, and a fun co-ed adventure, check out the local community/student based club here at www.asufieldhockey.com.
