Tales from the Greek | Marco Luccio

17 September - 4 December 2022

Five years in the making and an odyssey in its creation, Tales from The Greek is Marco Luccio’s artistic response to author John Hughes’ eight narrative adaptations of Greek myths and tragedies.

This selection of Luccio’s artworks is dramatic and gritty; using a variety of mediums, he has produced a collection of works that sing alongside the words of award-winning Cessnock born author John Hughes.
