The Bachelor of Illustration Creative Forum in July features Italian born Australian graphic designer and artist Mimmo Cozzolino.
The work of Cozzolino as an artist and graphic designer spans over 40 years from the early 1970s onwards. He and Fysh Rutherford were responsible for collating the work Symbols of Australia which was published in 1980.
Cozzolino is currently interested in photographic autobiography, not simply in the form of self-portraits, but as more widely expressed in all activities of a person’s life.
His work privileges the visual over the textual because he believes that images speak to us in important and different ways than words. Western culture, on the other hand, privileges text. The aphorism ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’, could here be more usefully reframed as ‘a picture can show us uniquely what one thousand words can’t’.
