Love Rhapsodies by David Curcio

For 2012 Boston artist David Curcio has created handmade and embroidered Valentines for 30Edesign. David’s work has a dark, haunting quality to it that brings a new twist to the traditional Valentine. His work is filled with a personal iconography of animals, pharmaceuticals, and American folklore.

David merges traditional printmaking methods with rudimentary embroidery and simple, direct drawing to create imagery at once universal and deeply personal. While a great admirer of folk art, Curcio’s  background in printmaking is extremely formal, and the introduction of self-taught fiber arts techniques (stitching, embroidering) is a direct means by which to strive for the purity, simplicity and (sometimes) un-assured techniques often achieved by folk artists.
