Executive poetics of the painting
In these highly suggestive pictorial works, Roberto Piaia, illustrates the Seven Deadly Sins.
Pride: A narrow cave where a sterile discussion takes place…
Here, at the centre of the seven representations we see an untouchable femininity, framed in a surreal world. Symbolism imposes itself in a way not instantly visible but requiring further attentive scrutiny. In no way do we find Dante’s misty scenes, but rather a vision of our existence. A form of precise warning with subtle irony, showing not only the concrete representation of each sin but also its retaliation
The abstract four color band is ever present, representing the seal of the artist personal style. Roberto Piaia defines his research using the term Assurfivo, meaning the fusion of three pictorial genre: abstract, surreal and figurative. Each of these works offers a perfect visual example of the artist’s definition.
