Alyssa De Luccia is a visual artist, who lives and works in Berlin, Germany and New York. Simultaneous dualities is a recurring theme in her work. As an artist, she draws inspiration from unfamiliar environments with the knowledge that everything isn't what it appears to be. Alyssa DeLuccia engages a range of disciplines which include photo-documentation, installation, portraiture and photo-montage, reflecting her interest in formalism while at the same time following a strong tradition in feminism, surrealism and dadaism. While her work increasingly reflects these influences, in recent times it also leans towards a social and political statement of a society out of balance as well as paying homage to the work of Hannah Hoch, a pioneer of Photomontage and social criticism of mass media.
Her self conception as an artist means that she views a “finished” group of works or series not as self evident and complete, but as part of a larger process both internal
and practical that leads to a new stage of artistic exploration. DeLuccia’s experimental working method is not based on a calculated, market oriented strategy, but arises from a need and necessity that includes a critical attitude towards oneself and the public.
She has shown in numerous museums and galleries, including the Staatliche Kunsthalle, Baden-Baden; the Wilhelm-Hack-Museum, Ludwigshafen am Rhein; Thaddaeus Ropac Gallery in Paris; and the Brandenburg State Museum in Cottbus, Germany. She has been the recipient of grants and residencies from a range of sources including The Mac Dowell Colony; Kuenstlerhaus Bethanien Berlin; KW Institute for Contemporary Art Berlin; the Cité des Arts in Paris; Stiftung Kunstfonds from Bonn; Research/ Artist Grant, for Fine Arts from the Berlin Senate.
